Iraqis Eager to Build a Democracy
Fact of the Day

Despite terrorist intimidation, Iraqis are eager to take the next step in forming a democratic government. A recent Iraqi public opinion poll conducted by the International Republican Institute (IRI) showed that 71.4 percent of Iraqis polled intended to vote in the January 30 elections. The majority believe that Iraq will be ready to hold elections and are confident that their vote will be secure and secret. After years of oppression, Iraqis now have the opportunity to build a functioning democracy.
