Election Campaigning Begins

By John Lee.

Election campaigning began formally today across Iraq, Asharq al-Awsat reports.

Perhaps optimistically, they suggest this marks the end of the crisis with the Independent High Electoral Commission, following their return to work last week.

Campaign posters and billboards already adorn many parts of Baghdad, as seen in this Al Arabiya slideshow.

Radio Free Iraq has noted how the fact that campaigning has begun on April fools day is a source of amusement for many Iraqis.

    I'm glad to know that Iraq has moved on from the dreadful era of their country's history and ready to get up again. I hope that the one who will man the helm will give a brighter future.
