News in Review A New Beginning: Iraqis Try Democracy

On January 30, 2005, Iraqis went to the polls in the first truly free elections in their country’s history. Insurgents had threatened to kill anyone who voted, and 36 people did die in a number of attacks. But many Iraqis were not intimidated, and voter turnout was much higher than expected. In this News in Review story we’ll look at that historic vote and at the bloody events that came before and after. We’ll also tell you who won and what the results might mean for the future of Iraq and its long-suffering people.
