Good morning everyone, or good evening depending on where you live!
It’s 7:45 am now in Baghdad and the voting centers inside Iraq were open on time 45 minutes ago.
The first news clips broadcast on local TV showed people voting as early as 7:05!
Also politicians and government officials have started casting their ballots in a special station located inside the Green Zone. The first politician we saw vote on TV were Mithal al-Alusi who leads a list of his own and Dr. Hussein al-Shahristani from the UIA.
The first wave of our special reports from eight Iraqi provinces-in addition to Baghdad-will start coming to you in a few hours so keep an eye on Pajamas for the full coverage.
Now excuse me while I go vote!
