Large-scale protests took place in large cities of Iraq, the participants of which called for a change in the political system. As reported “Interfax”, a demonstration of many thousands took place in Baghdad.

Dozens of people were injured in clashes with police.

In a statement, the protesters indicated that their goal is to change the political system with the help of a constitution and a new social contract in order to get rid of “a system designed by others.” The organizers of the protest actions assured that they were going to peacefully achieve their goals, and therefore they would give “all political forces until October 25 to leave the political process.” Otherwise, the demonstrators intend to protest even more actively.

The statement also notes that it is necessary to create an interim government under international supervision, which will not include any of the people who have led the country since 2003, including the current Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kazemi.
