The Iraqi government is securing the upcoming elections due on May 12 by rallying military factions that would exert unified efforts, alongside Iraq’s air forces to protect and supervise the security situation up until the results.

Security measures will extend to the provinces of Kurdistan to ensure the protection of the Ministry of Interior and all electoral centers.

The security plans were launched on Saturday, and will extend until the results are announced

According to local sources, a partial ban on vehicles will be imposed on the morning of polling day to protect electoral centers, and to block the bridges between the two banks of the capital Baghdad

This means that only the main roads are to remain open to facilitate the movement of voters to polling stations.
