Please explain why?

Legitimacy comes from the people alone.

If all of the people are not free to have their vote count then the vote does not represent all of the people.

The fact that the 3 province rule is very close to being employed, and that the people most likely to vote against were the ones who did not get to vote creates the perception of fraud.

You don't have to suppress all of the voters to change the results.

.....In Ramadi, a group of residents said they had walked around their neighborhood looking for a voting center and not found one….

LOL...I did like this one; I need the number to the Human rights guy.. “Thair al-Hadeethi” so I can whine about the same thing in my own neighborhood!


I quoted you and myself as well.

By your criterion I am also oppressed and votes are invalid, who do I contact?

LOL..the reasons are transparent, stop itching to point fingers.
