The parliamentary elections on 7 March 2010

About 17 million Iraqis are entitled to vote in the parliamentary elections on 7 March, the third such vote since the overthrow of the Saddam Hussein regime. The Iraqi parliament has important powers. It elects the country’s president and is required to approve candidates, proposed by the president, for prime minister and other cabinet-level positions.
