Several real dilemmas still exists for the drafting of a constitution in Iraq.
Link below; my emphasis:

Kurdish delegates continue to insist on a future right to vote for full independence, something that most Iraqis oppose. Shiites want their religious leaders to have a major say in the country's new laws, which is opposed by Sunnis and Kurds. And the Sunnis worry that a federalist approach would leave Shiites and Kurds sitting on most of the country's oil wealth.”

“One reason the constitution is being viewed as so important is because it could draw Iraq's Sunnis into the political process and thereby undermine the insurgency. But the only way to finish the document on time was to either run roughshod over Sunni concerns or for Shiites and Kurds to abandon promises they've made to their own constituencies.”
