So what they re doing is having what amounts to a popular vote and the one with the most will take office until the consitution is drafted then they will hold another Election right?
The election will be Iraq's first popular vote in decades. Iraqis will choose a 275-member assembly that will write a permanent constitution. If adopted in a referendum next year, the constitution would form the legal basis for another general election to be held by Dec. 15, 2005.

It looks to me that if the US get his way and push elections on Iraq, its only going to be one group and one side.

I'm a little puzzled by the fact that the electoral law requires that one third of the candidates be women. While I don't want to see women excluded, I think that imposing artificial limits at this stage could be counter-productive. It brings to mind the problems encountered with our affirmative action quota limits.
