IRAQI TURKMENS CALL FOR BOYCOTT OF NATIONAL CENSUS

The authorities have said that the Iraqi population will be counted on 24 October [2010]. However, many have called for a postponement or else the process would be boycotted.

Ultimately, the existing shaky balance of power could get even shakier.
