Evaluating Iraq’s Future after Elections

On March 7th, an estimated 18.9 million registered Iraqi voters will participate in the country’s second parliamentary election, facilitating what could be their most important transfer of national power. Even if the elections are free and fair, fluctuating coalitions vying for ministerial positions could make the political landscape in Iraq very volatile for months to come.

Will the drawdown of U.S. forces be adversely affected by the election results? Will minority voters support a governing coalition despite the purging of national Sunni political leaders? What are the prospects for a stable and democratic Iraq after these elections? Please Join ISW Iraq experts for answers to these questions and much more.
