Iraq: Elections, Constitution, and Government [Updated January 11, 2007]   [open pdf - 71KB]

From the Summary: "Elections in 2005 for a transition government (January 30, 2005), a permanent constitution (October 15), and a permanent (four year) government (December 15) produced a Shiite-led government that many Sunnis view as biased. The December 6, 2006, Iraq Study Group report recommends a number of steps to accelerate national reconciliation. President Bush's new Iraq initiative, announced January 10, 2006, requires cooperation from the Iraqi government, which it has not demonstrated to date, in acting against Shiite armed elements participating in sectarian violence. (See CRS [Congressional Research Service] Report RL31339, 'Iraq: Post-Saddam Governance and Security', by Kenneth Katzman.)"
