(AINA) – 150,000 ChaldoAssyrians gathered in al-Hamadaniya, Karmelis, Bartila, al-Ayadiya and the surrounding villages to protest their exclusion from voting in the election on Sunday, Azzaman Newspaper reported yesterday.

Voting boxes and supplies were not delivered to the predominantly Christian districts of Baghdeda, Bartilla, Karamlesh, Shekhan, Ain Sifne and Rimady, which have a population of 300,000 ChaldoAssyrians. The voting boxes were to be delivered from Kurdish controlled Arbil. Election officials repeatedly gave assurances that the boxes would arrive from Arbil, but without any results.
