Interview: Tariq al-Hashemi

Tariq al-Hashemi tells Al Jazeera why he objected to Iraq's new election law.




    Iraq's electoral commission has stopped preparations for national polls scheduled for January.

    The move came after Tariq al-Hashemi, the Iraqi vice-president vetoed a law crucial to implementing the election.

    In an interview with Al Jazeera, he said he did so because the law did not give enough representation to Iraqis outside the country.
