Iraqi defence minister floats election delay

"If this is what the Iraqi government and the IECI decide to do, I would be the last one to protest.

But I don’t see how they can structure a delay that accomplishes anything. The Iraqi government is offering this to “Sunni parties,” that presumably can be negotiated with. I’ll buy that assumption. There are responsible Sunni leaders who can speak for most, if not all, of the Sunni community, and those leaders are amenable to some agreement; they will discuss these things in good faith. All that I buy.

What are all the options in Iraq?"
