Iraqi Parliamentary Elections Coverage

From Omar of Iraq the Model is an English-speaking Iraqi dentist in Baghdad who has been blogging with his brother since the war began. He announces:

If everything goes as planned for tomorrow, Pajamas Media and ITM will be hosting extensive coverage of the parliamentary elections in Iraq. Eight correspondents based in eight different Iraqi provinces will be submitting several waves of election updates and photos exclusive to Pajamas Media. Mohammed and I will also be doing our usual reporting tomorrow and this large amount of reports will be cross-posted on ITM and Pajamas. The eight provinces are: Erbil, Kirkuk, Mosul, Babil, Najaf, Kerbala, Samawa, Basra as well as Baghdad of course. The correspondents' names will be hidden and only initials will be used for reasons concerning their personal safety. Journalists and reporters in Iraq had been targeted by the terrorists many times and we have granted our correspondents' requests to refer to them by initials only.

Tune in Thursday to Pajamas Media.

May God protect the Iraqi people during this historic day.
