It offers a comparative analysis of the present Constitution and the previous one (1970). It is demonstrated that there are virtually no significant places for Sharia and Islam in the 1970 Constitution.

                     Drafting of the Constitution 2005

The administrator of the Coalition Provisional Authority of Iraq Paul Bremer produced a tough resistance to the attempts to include Islamic principles in any project of future Constitution [16].
