Is this in the rulebook? Is there, um, a rulebook? From Fox News:
Anti-American cleric Muqtada al-Sadr is calling on his supporters and other Iraqis to vote in a referendum this weekend to decide which political leader he should support for prime minister.
Kind of like "Iranian Idol."
Al-Sadr's hardline, religious Shiite party, which won 39 of the 325 parliamentary seats in the March 7 election, has emerged as a key powerbroker whose support will prove crucial in determining which of the two leading blocs will form the next government.
A spokesman for al-Sadr, Salah al-Obaidi, said Wednesday the referendum results would be binding on the party.
Such democractic democrats.
The voting would be Friday and Saturday at al-Sadr offices, mosques and other sites across the country.
Al-Sadr first called for the referendum Tuesday on his Web site.
