As Iraq gets ready for its parliamentary elections on Sunday, citizens living outside the country seem determined to make their voices heard as well.
Haj Reza Shekarchi, is one such Iraqi who has been living in neighbouring Iran since he fled his native country in 1980. He is one of about 100,000 Iraqis in Iran who are eligible to vote in the election at polling stations set up all over Iran.
