UN Comments on Elections as Parties Forge Gov't

NPR's Morning Edition had a report by Jaime Tarabay, regarding the Iraqi political situation. It can be distilled as such.

  • Iraqi political parties, in particular the Shiites and the Kurds, are moving ahead with coalition talks, and

  • The UN weighs in on the elections, saying they were fair and transparent.

UPDATE: Today (Dec 30) Morning Edition has a story that International Inspectors will come in and look at the vote, which will be seen as a political coup for the Sunnis, since it demonstrates they still wield clout.
