A mobile telecomunications company called Korak Telecoms has sent thousands of text-messages (SMS) to its subscribers promoting the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) (List 296) for the Sulaimani, Duhok and Erbil Council elections.
Mobile users have received text-messages saying "Vote for the No. 296 List in the Council elections for Sulaimani, Erbil, and Duhok".
Last night was mad
People until 1-2 a.m were in the streets shouting and chanting slogans in favour of their parties. This photo is taken from one of the Kurdish newspapers. The Council elections is where people are doing the competition. List number 109 (PUK list) and list number 296 (KDP) list are racing against each other.
Torn posters ! Very common in the mornings !
Elections Campaign officially stopped as for today.
