Free and Fair

Iraq must be proud, being the first Islamic country in the Middle East conducted a free and fair election.

So, how is Malaysia doing after going through more than 10 elections?

How was Malaysian Election Commission carry out their duty in ensuring a truly free and fair election?

Will Malaysians at large be at par to the brave Iraqis?

"(CNN) -- Israel may have to retire its title as the only democracy in the Middle East. With Sunday's free and fair national election, Iraq joins the honor roll as one of the very few Islamic democracies.

Other Middle Eastern countries hold elections too, of course. But those elections fall into two broad categories. The first category is the blatantly rigged: Iran, most spectacularly, but also Algeria, Egypt, and Yemen, among others. In the second category, elections are more or less honest -- but fail to exert much control over the actions of the government: Lebanon, Morocco, and Jordan."
