Iraq: Elections, Government, and Constitution [January 20, 2006]   [open pdf - 66KB]

"Elections for a transitional National Assembly and government (January 30, 2005), a permanent constitution (October 15), and a permanent (four year) Council of Representatives and government (December 15) have been concluded despite insurgent violence. U.S. officials hope that the high turnout among Sunni Arabs in the December 15 elections -- and post-election bargaining among all factions -- will produce an inclusive government that reduces insurgent violence. (See CRS [Congressional Research Service] Report RL31339, 'Iraq: U.S. Regime Change Efforts and Post-Saddam Governance', by Kenneth Katzman.)"
