"elections" in iraq

From CNN:BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) -- Saddam Hussein won another seven-year term as Iraq's president in a referendum in which he was the sole candidate, taking 100 percent of the vote, the Iraqi leader's right-hand man announced Wednesday.

All 11,445,638 of the eligible voters cast ballots, said Izzat Ibrahim, vice chairman of the Revolutionary Command Council that is Iraq's key decision-making body.

"This is a unique manifestation of democracy which is superior to all other forms of democracies[...]"
100%... they had millions of voters with paper ballots... it must be the most efficient vote counting system in the entire world... although that wouldn't be surprising, given that it's the only dictatorship I know of that calls itself a democracy.
