Allawi Aide Predicts Elections Will Be Delayed

HeadlineNov 19, 2004

The Guardian of London reports that more doubts are being raised that January’s elections in Iraq will not go forward as scheduled. On Thursday a senior aide to prime minister Iyad Allawi predicted the elections would be delayed. A day earlier 47 political parties announced they would boycott the elections. Allawi’s aide said, “I don’t think within the time available we can do everything, so I think a delay or postponing elections is more likely than holding them on time.”
