Arabs and Turkmen in Kirkuk are accusing the Kurds of electrion fraud there, claiming they brought in tons of people from outside the city to vote. That might be the case, as the Iraqi Electoral Commission allowed refugees to vote there. The fraud claims that many of these people had also voted elsewhere. In any case, this could be the beginning of much larger problems as we move closer to when people will decide the oil-rich area's status.
