Iraq Constitution Passes

Good to see that as expected, the Iraqi constitution vote passed.

The turnour was a healthy 63% and the vote in favour was 78%.

Of the four Sunni dominated provinces, only two rejected it by over two thirds – 82% against in Salaheddin and 97% against in Anbar. The other two provinces were 55% against and 51% in favour.

While still a long way to go, Iraq now has the most democratic constutition of any state, excluding Israel.
