Iraq election results now in

From the beeb:
"Iraq's Shia-led United Iraqi Alliance has won the country's parliamentary elections..."
Which was predictable...
"but failed to obtain an absolute majority."
Meaning they'll have to govern in a coalition, which is surely the only feasible option in a country like Iraq? Marcus at HP links to this Times article that suggests despite winning less seats than last time, Allawi's Iraqi National List could hold the balance of power.
