An Iraqi perspective on the recent elections

DHI QAR, Iraq - The March 7 elections in Iraq remain a topic of interest as both former Prime Minister Iyad Allawi and current Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki try to create coalitions that would give them a 163-seat majority in parliament. As many feared, violence preceded and followed the announcement as deadly attacks in Baghdad and the province of Diyala brought March to a close, and bombers targeted the Iranian, German, Egyptian and Syrian embassies this weekend and attacked Baghdad on Tuesday. In addition, al-Maliki, who received two seats fewer than Allawi, is calling for a recount, claiming voter fraud.
