Whaddaya bet, once the results are announced, they'll be howling to the rafters complaining of fraud and rigged elections . . . then 3 or 4 months down the road after mysterious fires and missing files, accusations, finger pointing, show throwing and maybe even assassination attempt ( or 2 ); they MIGHT seat their government. 

 

Now that I look at what I just wrote . . . it would appear I've described a pretty smooth process for these guys. Carry on Kurdistan ! ! ! !

At some point you need to move on. The election re-count showed minor inconsistencies in the original election and yet resulted in significant delays. The good thing is that it has shown the Iraqi people that so far, everything has been by-the-book and under the Constitution. There are always going to be factions that are not happy with the outcome no matter the results.
