Iraq: Politics, Elections, and Benchmarks

Description:

Iraq's political system, the result of a U.S.-supported election process, continues to be riven by sectarianism and ethnic and factional infighting. The Administration asserts that the passage of key laws in 2008 will help heal remaining rifts and continue to reduce violence. Others see the schisms widening as Iraqi leaders wrangle over
unresolved issues that are complicating the holding of provincial elections.
