Los Angeles Times:
Top Iraqi politicians said late Tuesday that they had reached a deal to persuade leading Sunni Arabs to support a draft constitution that will be the subject of a national referendum Saturday.
Under the terms of the compromise, Sunni leaders would drop their opposition to the constitution if the current National Assembly requires its successor to renegotiate the charter. A new legislature is to be elected in December, and the deal mandates that a second constitutional referendum would be held within four months.
'If the present National Assembly approves this amendment, we will change our attitude to say yes,' said Ayad Samarayee, leader of the Iraqi Islamic Party, the main Sunni Arab group.
This seems very signifigant and very positive.
