In Iraq, parliamentary election results are due after what officials said could be a record-low turnout of just over 40 percent. This election follows public pressure to hold the vote early. Calls for reform have been growing since a violent crackdown on anti-government protests two years ago. Many Iraqis believe this election may be more for show, than real change.
It may seem counterintuitive – but many of those eager for political change see the low turnout as good news. Activists had called for a boycott of the election. They feel that most of the candidates are just more of the same old political class whose nepotism and mismanagement have driven the country to ruin.
Despite Iraq’s great oil wealth, its cities are crumbling. Infrastructure is in disrepair. Jobs and public services are hard to come by.
Not everyone saw the boycott as a solution, but it’s clear that by abstaining, many wanted to send a message to politicians. Still, few believe the incoming parliament will be interested in listening.
