THE VOTE ON CONSTITUTION

The vote on constitution in Iraq was a historic day and a Day that the Iraqian people aprrove the courageous and bravement to defeat the terrorists and most of Iraqian went to the voting station to say NO to terrorists either they vote yes or no to the draft of Constitution ... The important thing that is they participated in the vote because the is the Democracy .....

Sunni Arabs voted in surprisingly high numbers on Iraq's new constitution Saturday, many of them hoping to defeat it in an intense competition with Shiites and Kurds over the shape of the nation's young democracy after decades of dictatorship. With little violence, turnout was more than 66 percent in the three most crucial provinces.
The constitution still seemed likely to pass, as expected. But the large Sunni turnout made it possible that the vote would be close or even go the other way, and late Saturday it appeared at least two of a required three provinces might reject it by a wide margin.

75 percent, voter turnout in the Sunni heartland of Tikrit had exceeded their highest expectations.
"Once they were convinced that the security was there and it was a safe vote, then they started coming out in droves,".

After polls opened at 7 a.m., whole families turned out at voting stations, with parents carrying young children, sometimes in holiday clothes. Men and women lined up by the hundreds in some places or kept up a constant traffic into heavily bunkered polls, dressed their best in suits and ties or neatly pressed veils, or in shorts and flip-flops, weary from the day's Ramadan fast.

"I'm 75 years old. Everything is finished for me. But I'm going to vote because I want a good future for my children," Said Ahmad Fliha said after walking up a hill with the help of a relative and a soldier to a polling site in Haditha, a western Sunni town.
Some nine million Iraqis cast ballots, election officials said, announcing a preliminary turnout estimate of 61 percent.
The grim reality is that the democratic process has brought few tangible improvements to the Iraqi people's lives. Throughout the day the voting and counting had to be done without benefit of electricity because the insurgents blew up the power lines again.

In Baghdad, men counted votes by lanterns because the electricity was out in parts of the city. Results were written on a chalkboard. Outside, Iraqi soldiers huddled in a courtyard, breaking their fast. Northeast of the capital, in Baquba, men sat around long tables, putting "yes" votes in one pile and "no" votes in another.
A day that U.S. and Iraqi leaders feared could become bloody turned out to be the most peaceful in months, amid a heavy clampdown by U.S.-Iraqi forces across the country.




We hope Iraq return to his place among the countries and start building his future and approve the prosperity and progress for his poeple...
