Parliamentary elections were held in Iraq on 27 March 2000. The election was contested by 522 candidates, including 25 women. Thirty MPs were appointed to represent Iraqi Kurdistan.
Whilst there were a number of candidates, all independent candidates were nominally loyal to the Ba'ath party, and the res of the candidates were party members.
The Ba'ath Party won 165 of the 250 seats. Of the 85 remaining seats, 55 were independents, and 30 were appointed by the government to represent the northern Kurdish areas of Sulaymaniyah, Arbil and Dohuk, where no elections took place, and which had been outwith Iraqi government control following the Gulf War.
