    I have been trying to find out how the Iraqi party did in the recent election in Iraq, can you point me in the right direction?

    All the best

    Hi Mick,

    It seems from wikipedia that they were part of this group, which narrowly came first.


    I haven’t seen or heard from them any details, or seen anything on Solidnet.

    Yep, I saw that, I was looking for some kind of breakdown so I could get an idea of their support in the ‘new’ Iraq.

    comradely regards

    I have to say I have no real sense of that Mick. Clearly they can still put people on the ground and hold meetings and look after themselves. But beyond that it is hard to say.
