Also it seems you are arguing against that which we have, democracy and balance of power. Just my opinion from your words.
I agree there is a similarity. However we just need to get 2 parties working together to agree on a treaty etc. (assuming one party doesn't have an overwhelming majority, in which case only one party is enough)Originally posted by: Genx87
I think you missed the beauty of it. They modeled something after our own govtAll the above factors give each and every faction within the government (parliment) a lot of power with negotiations amongst each other. Without the various factions support, Maliki can do nothing, nor can any one faction (or small coalition of factions). This framework is a clusterf**k of unique proportions - an exceedingly difficult enviroment for achieving anything but squabbling.
They've got a lot more parties: Kurds, Shia and Sunni. Then there are difference within these groups creating many conflicting agendas.
