The European Union established a mission to support the Council of Representatives elections in Iraq on 7 March 2010.

The EAT consisted of 16 electoral and logistics experts, and operated in three locations: Baghdad, Erbil and Basra. The electoral experts arrived in Iraq on 2 February and remained in the country until the end of March.

The EAT provided targeted, short, medium and long-term recommendations in order to improve the electoral framework and conduct of electoral operations. The recommendations were shared with the government of Iraq, the IHEC and other relevant stakeholders.
