Iraq: Low election turnout, protests may reemerge, Iran and Saudi may not care

  • Iraq voter turnout has been falling since 2005, with a new low of 42% set in this week's election

  • Median age in Iraq is 21; the average citizen has lived in post-Saddam Iraq and passed up the first opportunity to vote

  • Al-Sadr has the upper hand in negotiations to form a government, protests may reemerge but Iran and Saudi may not care
