“The electoral law was embodied in another CPA [Coalition Provisional Authority] order, Order 96, issued on 15 June, 2004. The key stipulation of the law was that Iraq would be treated as one electoral district rather than a series of constituencies or regionally based or provincially based electoral districts, to elect 275 members of a Transitional National Assembly. …The CPA Order also called for every third candidate to be a woman.”
