Voters participate in parliamentary election across Kurdistan Region
People across the Kurdistan Region of Iraq voted on Sunday to choose 111 members of the parliament.
Voters proudly display their ink-dipped fingers to prove they have voted.
It's a proud day for participants of the older generation who have struggled for greater rights for Kurdistan since the establishment of Iraq.
From Halabja, to Sulaimani, to Erbil, to Duhok, voters were participating in what the election commission has hoped will be a clean and fair process.
