Its been more a week since the Iraq last parliamentary election. Iraqi High Electoral Commission (IHEC) is still working and did not announce the final results would take more time.
In all the election allover the world, the majority is the one who form the government but in Iraq, it looks that our political parties have a different ideology for election.
Since two days, we started hearing things like the participation of forming the government and the shares of the sovereign positions. Today I read in one of the newspapers a statement by the Kurdistan President Barazi saying "the Kurdish interest requires giving the president position to us". Other politicians also released different statements and started talking about the shares in the coming government. It looks that our politicians want to design a kind of democracy that fits their demands and wishes regardless the wish of millions of people who voted only to have a real national government that can provides their basic needs which they have been waiting to gain for decades.
If we are going to see the same sectarian and ethnic sharing in the coming government and since our election aims only to share the positions among the political parties, then why did we participate in election. In fact the right question should be (why do we even have election?)
