Adjusting the poll results

by Volker Weber

Reuters reports:

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraq's election body rejected a suggestion in Washington it adjust the results of next month's vote to benefit the Sunni minority if low turnout in Sunni areas means Shi'ites win an exaggerated majority in the new assembly.

A lesson in democracy. If you can't make sure via campaigns and helpful media, that the people elect whom they are supposed to elect, you may have to "adjust" the results.

Well if you consider/trust resources like this, then our American friends have a lot of experience how to adjust results.

Then later they can learn creative party financing from the Germans. :-)
