ABSTRACT
The article offers information on an opinion poll in Iraq, which shows that a majority of citizens have little interest now in dealing with members of the ousted regime of their former dictator Saddam Hussein. They are more interested in the December 2005 election for the National Assembly of Iraq. More than three-quarters of the Iraqis polled expressed confidence that the election will create a stable government.
