After the vote in the Autonomous Region, Patriarch Cardinal Louis Raphaël I Sako, speaks to ACN about hope, future and expectations of Christians in Iraq
"From this election we expect a positive political change", says Cardinal Louis Raphaël I Sako, Chaldean Catholic Patriarch of Babylon and Head of the Chaldean Catholic Church, to Aid to the Church in Need refering to the General elections scheduled to take place in Iraqi Kurdistan on Sunday, 30 September, to elect Parliament. "Cooperation between central Iraqi Government and authorities of Kurdistan is very important. If it works, the whole country works. If it does not work, many complications arise", says Patriarch Sako, elevated to cardinal by Pope Francis last 29 June.
