Election campaigning began formally today across Iraq, Asharq al-Awsat reports.
Perhaps optimistically, they suggest this marks the end of the crisis with the Independent High Electoral Commission, following their return to work last week.
Campaign posters and billboards already adorn many parts of Baghdad, as seen in this Al Arabiya slideshow.
Radio Free Iraq has noted how the fact that campaigning has begun on April fools day is a source of amusement for many Iraqis.

[Sallypuff] The US still has control of the IMF. I realize that is apt to be short lived. Remember what happened to Cristine LaGarde's predecessor? He was conveniently removed by unusual circumstances. The US appointed LaGarde. Who make the final decision for this country regarding the IMF. I believe it is Pres. Obama. Therefore, I believe Pres. Obama has the power to have the RV either held up or to go forward.
