Iraqi election workers raise a billboard from Prime Minister Iyad Allawi's political party in Baghdad January 16, 2005. Iraq's elections will be legitimate if roughly half the Sunni Arab minority votes despite threats of violence, a leading politician in the Shi'ite alliance expected to dominate the polls said on Saturday. If 40 to 50 percent of Sunnis vote, that would be very good, with all the measures taken by the insurgents and the terrorism, said Adel Abdul Mahdi. REUTERS/Atef Hassan RCS/GB
