Sunni bloc rejects Baghdad vote

#1
Iraq's main Sunni Arab political alliance has rejected the partial results of last week's parliamentary election in Baghdad province.
The Iraqi Accord Front threatened to block the creation of a new government if the result was not changed.

Later on Tuesday, Iraqi President Jalal Talabani called for a new government that includes all ethnic, religious and political groups.

He said Iraq could not "be governed by a majority that ignores the minority".

but it is obviously perfectly acceptable (or was) for the country to be governed by a minority that not only ignored the majority but frequently killed them.
