Iraq lifts ban on neo-Baathists

"Iraq has lifted a ban on nearly 500 candidates barred from the March election for alleged links to the late Saddam Hussein's Baathist party."

Everyone knows what they are now. A ban is no longer necessary. They might get a lot of Sunni Arab votes. They will probably win in some majority Sunni Arab provinces. They will never win nationally. In office, they will be to the majority of Arabs what Hakim is to the Sunni Arabs. Not good for an ethnic minority in a democracy.
