    Avoiding repercussions of their move on the country's political process, the commissioners of Iraq's Independent High Electoral Commission (IHEC) Sunday withdrew their mass resignation. Xinhua quoted Sarbast Mustafa, head of commissioners board, as saying "The commissioners of the electoral commission decided to retreat from their former resignation decision in response to official, local and international calls they received. We did not and will not be the reason behind destroying the security situation and the political process in Iraq." On Tuesday the IHEC commissioners submitted their resignations collectively to protest the political pressures on their work due to the conflict among political parties.
