The Iraqi government announced on Monday that the parliamentarian elections would be held on April 30, 2014.
The decision was approved by Vice President Hadayr al Huzai since Iraqi President Jalal Talabani is under treatment abroad.
The statement by Vice President Office noted that a new election law had not been prepared due to the political parties' controversy over it.
On the other hand, Iraqi Parliament Speaker Osama an-Nujaifi, concerning the election law, said that if the parties did not reach compromise on an election law they would go to the elections under the existing election law.
However, head of regional administration in north of Iraq Massoud Barzani, concerning the election law, stated beforehand that they would boycott the election in case parties did not compromise on it.
