Iraqis begin campaigning for parliamentary elections

Nearly 7,000 candidates are competing for 329 seats on May 12, which marks Iraq's fourth parliamentary elections since the 2003 US-led invasion that removed Saddam Hussein from power.

    Political parties in Iraq have started campaigning for parliamentary elections next month.

    Nearly 7,000 candidates are competing for 329 seats, but they face tough challenges following the three-year war against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) group.
