10 Oct 2021  |  The National
Iraq's first elections under a new electoral law saw a low voter turnout, with results expected to be announced within 24 hours of polls closing. Prime Minister Mustafa Al Kadhimi and other officials urged citizens to vote, emphasizing the importance of the elections for reform and development. Despite tight security measures and efforts to encourage participation, turnout was low, with only 41% of registered voters casting their ballots.

The World Bank predicts a 10% GDP shrinkage for Iraq, exacerbating the fiscal crisis. Many businesses have suspended operations, and informal workers are at high risk of falling into deep poverty.
