ABSTRACT
The article discusses politics and government in Iraq as of November 29, 2004. With the absence of civil authority comes widespread speculation in the Iraqi press--courtesy of the Institute for War and Peace Reporting--that last week's declaration of martial law is no temporary measure. Being temporary, it does not aim to suspend democratic life. The Iraqi National Accord believes that there is no alternative to democracy in Iraq. Besides, the said emergency law was issued by agreement with all the political parties in the government, not by any one individual or party. So, essentially, the INA is arguing that martial law isn't a power grab--but, if it is, remember that it isn't just Allawi who is grabbing power. Given the escalation of the insurgency even in the wake of the Falluja invasion, expect to see more of these arguments in the weeks ahead.
