Iraq is scheduled to hold provincial assembly elections in April 2013 and national parliamentary elections one year later. In late December, following arrests of his major Sunni Arab rival's bodyguards, Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki raised the possibility of advancing the 2014 parliamentary election to April 2013 and running for a third term. The parliament then passed a two-term limitation on the prime minister and other senior positions.
