Iraqis are scheduled to elect a 275-member National Assembly on Jan. 30, and those lawmakers will draft a new constitution.

There have been calls to postpone the election because of the ongoing insurgency, but US President Bush has insisted the vote be held as scheduled.

Osama bin Laden endorsed Abu-Musab al-Zarqawi as his deputy in Iraq and called for a boycott of next month's elections there in his latest audio tape.

The tape also called for attacking pipelines, planting mines and killing people who work for the occupation forces.

1- Is there any hope for the peaceful Iraq after the first democratic elections ?

2- Will there be any influence of Osamas new audiootape on the elections ?
