[JURIST] A Iraqi Sunni leader concerned with low Sunni representation on the committee charged with drafting Iraqs new constitution [JURIST news archive] reiterated Saturday that Sunnis will suspend work on the document if the make-up of the committee is not altered. Adnan Dulaimi, chairman of the Sunni charitable foundation body, told Islam Online that if their demands were not met they would seek arbitration by a neutral body like the UN. Iraqi president Jalal Talabani [Wikipedia profile] last week voiced support for the request of adding 23 Sunnis to the 2 currently on the 55-member committee, but leaders of the Shiite-dominated government feel that number would be unreasonable. Sunnis, who boycotted the December elections [JURIST news archive], won only 17 seats in the country's parliament. The interim Iraqi constitution sets a tentative deadline of August 15 for the drafting process, although a one six-month extension can be sought before August 1. IOL has more.
