Iraqis Voting In First Elections After IS Defeat

Web Desk (May 12,2108): For the first time since driving out Islamic State, Iraqis go to the polls for first parliamentary elections, on Saturday.

The oil producer has been struggling to find a formula for stability since a US-led invasion toppled dictator Saddam Hussein in 2003, and politics has brought only disappointment to most Iraqis.The three main ethnic and religious groups — two Arab sects and the Kurds — have been at odds for decades, and the sectarian divisions remain as deep as ever.

 

Iraqis seem to have little faith that a new parliament will be any more able to tackle their country’s numerous challenges.
