Iraqis Change Constitution Rules

In a power grabbing attempt to jam the Iraqi Charter through the approval process, the Shia and Kurdish members of the Iraqi parliament have changed the requirements for passage.

Instead of the original two-thirds of the vote needed in three provinces to reject the constitution in the upcoming referendum, on Sunday the Kurds and Shia reps. changed the requirements for passage to read two-thirds of registered voters are needed for rejection...a much more difficult goal to achieve.

In essence, this move reduces the influence of the Sunis in the process.

However, the United Nations has condemned the Iraqi Charter change.

And on it goes, seemingly without end.
