Special Representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations Jenin Hennes-Blachart that “it is time for the Iraqi authorities to implement what the demonstrators demand,” while calling for “to stop the violence immediately.”

“We have given advice to the Iraqi government and it is time to offer something to the people,” she said at a press conference in Najaf after meeting with the supreme religious authority, Ali al-Sistani.

“It should not be an arena for political liquidation because there is news from all sides,” she said, calling on the government to “investigate where the tear gas came from.”

“The Marjaiya expressed concern about the lack of seriousness of the political forces to carry out reforms, and stressed that the demonstrators can only return with the reforms.”

However, “if the political forces and presidencies are incapable and do not want to make reconciliation, we must take another path,” pointing out that “the reference point stressed the need not to use violence against peaceful demonstrators and stop arrests and abductions immediately and the need for reforms.”

“The Marjaiya welcomed our proposal for a unified election law,” she said.
