The ball is now in the state of law’s court to make the brave steps
Rawaz Mahdi Khoshnaw, Kurdish member of the Iraqi Parliament on the Kurdistani Alliance Bloc, argues that in the past few years the relations between Kurdistan Region and the Federal Government of Iraq have been going through many turbulences and often crisis, which have “unfortunately” paved the road to many voices within the National Alliance to speak publically against Kurdistan’s constitutional rights and economic prosperity. PM Khoshnaw said in an exclusive interview with the Kurdish Globe that State of Law, which is one of the main blocks within the National Alliance has been adopting policies through which they aim at undermining Kurdistan’s prosperity. MP Khoshnaw believes “the continuation of this approach from state of law under the National alliances umbrella would eventually results in the damage of the historic and the strategic ties between the Kurds and the Shiites.”
“That is why practical steps needed from state of law to heal what have been damaged,” Kurdish MP told the Globe. “After the brave visit of KRG's PM Mr. Nechirvan Barzani, the ball is now in the state of law’s court to make the brave steps needed towards implementing the latest agreement and the previous ones. in addition they need to reassure everyone that the pillars on which the political process in Iraq had been built on which are consensus, true partnership, and the national balance are still the guiding principles in the context of the constitution.”
Needless to mention after all the atrocities and the oppression Kurds suffered in the past, its other Iraqi partners national duty to reassure the Kurds that the democratic state of Iraq is preserving their rights and display strong guarantees that what have happened in the past against them will never happen again, meaning that Iraq offers hope not fear.
MP Khoshnaw reiterated that without these brave and serious steps from the state of law, it would be too optimistic to believe there will be any positive change, and the crisis would remain the dominant figure in this country.
