    In spite of Al-Qaeda threats, the turnout of women was higher than men in the Iraqi election at the weekend. The turnout of women was an encouraging 55%. Women all over Iraq ignored the threats of Al-Qaeda connected Al Zarkavi, which had promised to turn the country into a blood bath, and went out to vote.

    Some women took their children along with them to the polling stations. And even handicapped women went out to vote.

    America, Britain, the UN, France, Germany and Russia all welcomed the high turnout of women in the Iraqi elections. In a telephone call to President Bush, French President Jacques Chirac said "This is a great day. In these elections, terrorists have been partly defeated."

    The presidential election in Iraq is expected to achieve closure by naming Iad Allavi, or another Shiite, the Prime Minister and making Kurd leader Jalal Talabani the president. Sunni leader Adnan Pacaci will then lead the parliament.
