Iraq government can be described as a corrupt, miserable and paralyzed country, whose interim government was formed by a coalition led by the United States in the April, 2004. The United Sates government was in charge of Iraq over the period when the country had not yet conducted its elections. Eight months later, around January, 2005, Iraq formed a government after conducting a general election. The United States led coalition government handed the governance powers to the leader government formed after the general elections. It is however clear that although the United Sates handed the power to the Iraq government there is still a lot which can be termed as a threat to the entire community of Iraq population (Katzman and Prados, 2003).
Although the general elections marked an official change from the dictatorship leadership of Saddam to a form of leadership that had different ideologies Iraq has several problems with its people. When we look at the issue of the medical and health care, a lot has been left out which contribute to the welfare of the society. The entire Iraq has a poor modern facilities of health care and although the government said it will look at that, little is done to ensure that the society is getting the right medication. The conflict which is ever in Iraq does not allow the place to experience medical growth which means that services which the society is getting and will continue to get are of poor quality. Since the elected leaders have made themselves rich from corrupt things, they are able to get medication from outside and thus they do not care about their people.
Katzman (2003) postulated that, the Iraqi people were ignorant and had no idea on how to go about the voting process. Moreover, majority of them did not know the people to elect for the various leadership positions. Since money is the talk of the day in Iraq, the government which comprises of those who are rich has put some regulations which govern the issue of holding some money in their accounts. No one is allowed to hold more than 10,000 USD which means that this is a threat to the future of the people of Iraq. On the same not the government does not give outsiders citizenship even though one might have married or being married within the country.
The post-war or new Iraqi government has not benefited the Iraqi people in any observable way since people continue to be miserable. The government is driven by selfish and greedy leaders who are only there for self-gain. These leaders do not serve the citizens who elected them into the government positions that they selfishly hold. There has been political and economical instability and the new government is putting no effort to improve the situation. On the same note Iraq got no commercial air operating service to the UK and other countries meaning that the population continues to have problems in connecting to other countries (Katzman, 2003).
In conclusion, it is clear that Iraq elections were not the key solution to solving the country’s miserable and paralyzed situation. It instead worsened the situation since citizens were left miserable and non-catered for by the new government. Moreover, money is whet determines the amount of power that one possesses, in that the most powerful people are the richest people in Iraq.
