New Iraq Election Ruling Makes al-Maliki Winner

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

A new ruling by election officials in Iraq means that the current prime minister, Nouri al-Maliki, who narrowly lost the election, may actually be the winner. The victory is a result of the disqualification of a parliamentary candidate who has been barred by the court because of links to Sadam Hussein's Baath party.

We take a look at what this means for the Iraqi government with BBC correspondent, Garbriel Gatehouse who reports from Baghdad.
