Most of the Iraqi voters in UK are Kurds

According to a report by BBC, the organisers of the elections in the UK say that most of the voters in the UK are Kurds.

A few Kurdish groups held a small party near the registeration hall in order to attract more voters. I missed out on this one. I went earlier last week.

But out of about 1 Million Iraqis living in the UK only 15 000 have registered. An election organiser told me that %80 of the voters are Kurdish.

And another rumour that I heard was each 24,000 vote was equal to a seat in the Iraqi parliament.
So the voters in Europe might make up about 4-5 seats.
