Iraqi Communist Party / Nation Union #324 الطريق : موقع الحزب الشيوعي العراقي

iraqi communist partyالطريق : موقع الحزب الشيوعي

The ICP (Iraqi Communist Party) is part of a coalition called Itihad al-Sha'ab, quite literally, "people's union", but in the list of contestants it is called "Nation Union"

This site was pointed out to me by the community board (thanks nor!). They have a mixed bag of people represented on their ticket : Shi'as, Sunnis, Kurds, etc.

It should also be pointed out that calling the ICP 'communist' is inaccurate. They're more like Social Democrats in their thinking, but have retained the name, I suppose, because of the legacy of the party (oldest political party in the Arab world).
