    Iraq's Electoral Commission has now stopped preparations for the vote in January.

    The move came after Tariq al-Hashemi, the Iraqi vice-president vetoed a law crucial to implementing the election.

    In an interview with Al Jazeera, he says he did so because the law did not give enough representation to Iraqis outside the country.
