Monitors in Iraq Review Votes Where 'Yes' Ballots Hit 90%

 

In a statement on Monday evening, the Independent Election Commission of Iraq said the results of the referendum on Saturday would have to be delayed "a few days" because the apparently high number of "yes" votes required election workers to "recheck, compare and audit" the results.

 

The statement made no mention of the possibility of fraud, but said results were being re-examined to comply with internationally accepted standards. Election officials say that under those standards, voting procedures should be re-examined anytime a candidate or a ballot question got more than 90 percent of the vote.

 

Members of the commission declined to give any details. But one official with knowledge of the balloting said the 12 provinces where the "yes" votes exceeded 90 percent all had populations that were majority Shiite or Kurdish. Leaders from those communities strongly endorsed the proposed constitution.

 

Some of the provinces, the official said, reported that 99 percent of the ballots counted were cast in favor of the constitution.

 

It is difficult to imagine why any Shiite or Kurdish political leaders would resort to fraud. Together the two groups make up about 80 percent of Iraq's population.[/SIZE]

Monitors in Iraq Review Votes Where 'Yes' Ballots Hit 90%

hey

redline

 

 

Do you remember some time ago when Saddam ran for president of Iraq ?

 

He got 99.9 % of the vote ! :lol:

 

I would guess about 1,000 people were in big trouble !

 

Then,

when Saddam ran a second time....he got 100 % of the votes :blink:

:D

 

90 % that voted YES, voted against going back to the way it was under Saddam.

 

10% want Saddam to come back. If 20% of the minority is Sunni, ..only half of them wanted Sadam to return and bring back the life they once lived

 

That voter result sounds about right to me.

Many polling stations couldn't open in the Anbar province under the threat of "Sharia Law" invoked by freedom Fighters.

My question is this;

If 95% voted 'NO' at the stations that did open in anbar province....

 

would there be talk of voter fraud by the MSM (main stream media ) ?

today as we are waiting for the results , it is very clear that these radicals and terrorists can't be sure of getting absolute majority of three governats voters. What does that would tell.? For me it is a big blow up to claims by US media that these groups are gaining power, even among Sunni Arab. With the current diverse of attention to the Saddam trial and today's Syrian relation to hariri's killing, seems to me we already passed the Iarqi destruction phase by terrorists and we are moving fast into the second phase of political competition.. ..

Let talk on this phase where all the sacrifieses were for.

The political campains already started and a new sceen on the stage is to start!

Congradulations...

 

Finally Iraqis crossed the line of freedom.. We were so worried after the continual delays.. Most Iraqis were confident that the draft is voted for YES, so started to worry that the visit of the Arab leage is to change the counts! Final results showed 78% of Iraqis voted for it.. The Mosul province got 44% in faviour so passed the three province majority reject.. One of first in it's type of democracy of letting 15% of population to stop the will of majority..

 

We need to have stop here to remmember all the sacrifieces by Iraqis and their liberators. To all those who stand firm and still in support to new Iraq the irst real democracy in Middel East..
