' Iraq has finally set a date for elections -- seen as a critical step towards the withdrawal of U.S. troops -- the head of the country's Independent High Electoral Commission said Tuesday.
"After intensive discussion with the presidential council we've all agreed on March 6, 2010 to be the new date for the parliamentary elections," Faraj al-Haidari told CNN. The country's president and two vice-presidents have approved the date, he said.'
I hope Iraq experiences REAL change as a result of the elections.
Update: Elections will be held March 7, 2010.
