Sea­son of po­lit­i­cal games to­wards the be­gin­ning of the end

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS - By Gazi Has­san

One of the good as­pects of po­lit­i­cal process in Kur­dis­tan Re­gion is re­turn­ing to po­lit­i­cal talks and lis­ten­ing to each other. When the po­lit­i­cal au­thor­ity in the Re­gion comes to know the sit­u­a­tion is head­ing to­wards ten­sion and crises, it soon thinks of re­turn­ing to the logic of talks, un­der­stand­ing, and di­a­logue. This is go­ing to keep us away from ten­sions and elim­i­na­tion of one another. On the con­trary, when the op­po­si­tion par­ties know the sit­u­a­tion is tran­quil and the ten­sions are dis­ap­pear­ing, they bring about a new project, elim­i­nat­ing their old projects in a ran­dom line, and pro­pose an ex­actly op­po­site pro­gram from what they had pro­posed ear­lier to the au­thor­ity. So the dis­putes re­vive from the start­ing point.

On the July 17, 2013, Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pres­i­dent Ma­soud Barzani, stated in a mes­sage that though he didn't agree with the con­tent of ex­tend­ing the term of the pres­i­dency, but he for the sake of re­spect­ing the sit­u­a­tion, he agreed, pro­vid­ing that the is­sues must be ad­dressed dur­ing one year and work hard af­ter the Sept 21st elec­tion to han­dover the power, and whomever peo­ple elects to be the pres­i­dent of the Re­gion he will con­grat­u­late him. This is the un­ty­ing of the knots, and the ter­mi­na­tion of all pro­pa­gan­das and pres­sures which Is­lamic par­ties and Gor­ran move­ment have re­cently started on Kur­dis­tan Re­gion pres­i­dent. This will cross the logic and breaks down all the fan­tasies, de­ci­sions and es­ti­ma­tions of the op­po­si­tion re­gard­ing dic­ta­tor­ship which were be­ing is­sued against Barzani.

Barzani says he will sup­port all par­ties for con­sen­sus, un­der­stand­ing and co­op­er­a­tion. All the va­ri­ety of po­lit­i­cal com­po­nents, Kurds, Turk­men, Kil­dan, Assyr­i­ans and other re­li­gions should take part in de­cid­ing on their de­ter­mi­na­tion in Kur­dis­tan. The de­ci­sion should not be made only by PDK, PUK and other three op­po­si­tion par­ties; on the con­trary, all com­po­nents of Kur­dis­tan should take part in mat­ters and de­ci­sions of im­por­tance. This is a suit­able logic for tol­er­ance, un­der­stand­ing, trusted co-de­ci­sion and im­prov­ing democ­racy prin­ci­ples.

When one looks at po­lit­i­cal equa­tion of Kur­dis­tan, feels a tough con­flict and change. PDK and PUK want be op­po­nents in the par­lia­men­tary and pro­vin­cial elec­tion and are run­ning in sep­a­rate lists, but at the same time, they want to main­tain their strate­gic agree­ment, which they con­sider an im­por­tant fac­tor of peace, de­vel­op­ment and po­lit­i­cal un­der­stand­ing in Kur­dis­tan.

The three op­po­si­tion par­ties be­lieve this step of PDK and PUK to harm their fu­ture and pub­lic stand­ing; they al­ways dis­ad­van­tage from the unity of PDK and PUK, and the op­po­site make them grow. So they work to drive the sit­u­a­tion into a di­rec­tion in which vi­o­lence is used, and cre­ate a con­stant po­lit­i­cal chaos and dis­or­der.

That's why the op­po­si­tion par­ties have de­cided to re­spond (No) for ev­ery (Yes) of the au­thor­ity, and sim­i­larly re­spond (No) for ev­ery (No) of the au­thor­ity. So the di­rec­tions are op­po­site to un­der­stand­ing and the el­e­ments which give re­in­force­ment to democ­racy in Kur­dis­tan. No con­sen­sus seems to be achieved by go­ing in this di­rec­tion. The op­po­si­tion's po­lit­i­cal con­flict is go­ing in a di­rec­tion that they do not in­tend to get ad­van­tage of Barzani's opin­ion who says" I did not in­tend to re-elect to the Re­gion Pres­i­dency", at the same time, they can't stand his pres­ence in the po­si­tion as Re­gion's pres­i­dent. So the con­flicts go across from be­ing nat­u­ral and are driven to­wards a di­rec­tion which cir­cum­stances in Kur­dis­tan can­not bear. This is a kind of child­ish sick­ness, be­cause they don't want a po­lit­i­cal process to pro­ceed with re­spect­ing will of peo­ple of Kur­dis­tan and con­sen­sus, this is con­sid­ered as a doubt, a po­lit­i­cal doubt.

But we should not for­get that Kur­dis­tan will keep liv­ing in tran­quil­ity, be­cause Barzani has un­der­stood the po­lit­i­cal games and he man­ages the mat­ters calmly with a wide vi­sion, so that the process main­tained in peace and did not reach a point where couldn't be con­trolled. He can't hand over the des­tiny of Kur­dis­tan peo­ple to the hur­ri­cane of fear and wor­ries and po­lit­i­cal chaos. He al­ways work for de­ci­sion, unity and the will of Kur­dis­tan peo­ple by (Yes), and the oth­ers who have a nar­rowed-vi­sion po­lit­i­cal in­ten­tion in po­lit­i­cal con­flict and al­ways want to de­cide by (No). Not to for­get the world does not con­sist of black and white only, there var­i­ous col­ors, ideas and meth­ods. The ones, who keep the door to un­der­stand­ing and re­spect­ing each other and re­turn­ing to the will of peo­ple, al­ways win the process.
