Peace­ful Elec­tions

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS - H.G. Has­san

It seems that all the po­lit­i­cal par­ties in Kur­dis­tan have re­sponded pos­i­tively and re­spected the wishes ex­pressed by the Pres­i­dent Mas­soud Barzani on the fourth of April, and kept all elec­tion cam­paigns peace­ful and civ­i­lized.

"To show a civ­i­lized and mod­ern im­age of Kur­dis­tan to the world and win the trust of the pub­lic, I ask all Kur­dish po­lit­i­cal par­ties to run a peace­ful elec­tion cam­paign and stay away from any vi­o­lence," Barzani states, and he could not have been more right.

Lately, fear of gun­shots and car screeches in the mid­dle of the night has di­min­ished. The un­sta­ble and hec­tic at­mos­phere that goes along with elec­tions in Kur­dis­tan has been sub­dued to a much calmer, al­most car­ni­val-like kind of en­vi­ron­ment. The way things have been de­vel­op­ing pre­sents a very pos­i­tive im­age of the Kur­dish re­gion.

With this, Kur­dis­tan can sigh with sat­is­fac­tion be­cause the elec­tion time is al­ways the hard­est time, but we've so far man­aged to keep it un­der con­trol .
