Iraqis will vote Oct. 15 in a referendum to approve the reelection of President Saddam Hussein, Iraqi television reported. The television, monitored by the British Broadcasting Corp., said Hussein had signed a decree setting the date. The ruling Revolutionary Command Council nominated Hussein as the sole presidential candidate last week when it approved amendments to Iraq's interim constitution, among them a provision to elect the president through secret ballot for a seven-year term.
