イラク大統領がほぼ決まったらしい。

BBCでしか確認してませんが,USが強く押した人物(サダムのクーデター以前に外相をしていた人)ではなく,a businessman and tribal leader who has been sharply critical of the US-led coalitionにして現在の統治評議会議長Ghazi Yawerが,大統領に内定。いや,元外相にしても現議長にしても,どちらも親米の亡命イラク人なんですが。

ちなみに,大統領は「名誉職」のような感じで,実際に政治を行うのは首相。

※首相も先日決まりましたが,イラクの人々としてみれば「それって誰?」なようです。「政治家」と言えばサダムとバアス党という状況が続いてきたのだから,「誰?」状態なのは何の不思議もない。ましてや亡命イラク人では……。米の作戦はshock and awe改めheart and mindというんだけど,ほんっとに空虚に響く。Yawer 'accepts Iraqi presidency'

Ghazi Yawer, the current head of the Governing Council, has also criticised the US-drafted resolution, complaining it gives Iraqis too little control of over the coalition forces that will remain in Iraq.
_
Nothing less than "full and complete sovereignty" would be acceptable for the interim government, he has said.
_
A prominent tribal leader from the northern city of Mosul who generally appears in tradition Arab dress, he has wide support from various ethnic and religious groups.
_
He studied engineering at Georgetown University in Washington, and for many years ran a telecoms company in Saudi Arabia.

まだ記事が短いんですが,後で追記されるかもしれませんね。

There is confusion over the selection of a new interim president for Iraq, with reports saying the current leader, Ghazi Yawer, will assume the post.
_
Earlier reports said ex-Foreign Minister Adnan Pachachi had been chosen but had then turned down the job.
_
Mr Pachachi, 81, was preferred by the US, but most of the US-appointed Governing Council favoured Mr Yawer.
_
Council member Mahmoud Othman told journalists that a formal announcement will be made later on Tuesday.
_
The interim president will head a new administration from 30 June.
_
Members of the Governing Council had accused the US of trying to impose a new Iraqi president against their wishes.
_
The dispute has delayed the announcement of the interim government that will lead Iraq from the end of this month.
_
Democratic elections are due to be held by next January.
