Abstract:

Elections in 2005 for a transition government January 30, 2005, a permanent constitution October 15, and a permanent four year government December 15 were concluded despite insurgent violence, progressively attracting Sunni participation. On May 20, a unity government was formed as U.S. officials had been urging, but it is not clear that the new government will be able to reduce ongoing violence. See CRS Report RL31339, Iraq Post-Saddam Governance and Security, by Kenneth Katzman.
