More Good News from Iraq

One day after Iraq announced that their new constitution had officially passed, three Sunni groups announced the formation of an alliance which will participate in the new Iraqi political process.

The alliance, called the Iraqi Concord Front, consists of the National Dialogue Council and the Iraqi People's Gathering, both of which oppose the new constitution. The third group, the Iraqi Islamic Party, supports the constitution.

The fact that these three groups, united as the Iraqi Concord Front, intend to field candidates in the upcoming December 15 parliamentary elections, indicates a willingness to participate in the political process, and is only the latest sign that democracy is, in fact, beginning to take hold in Iraq.
