The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Head of Kur­dis­tan Demo­cratic Party (KDP) bloc in Kur­dis­tan Par­lia­ment de­nied re­ports talk­ing about Pres­i­dent Barzani and the Par­lia­ment Speaker Yusuf Mo­hammed de­cid­ing to ex­tend the pres­i­den­tial term in a mu­tual meet­ing. Omed Khosh­naw, Head of KDP bloc, told The Kur­dish Globe: “Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Pres­i­dent Mas­soud Barzani re­jects ex­ten­sion of pres­i­den­tial term def­i­nitely.”

He also de­clared that Pres­i­dent Barzani and Mo­hammed did not ab­so­lutely take any decision re­gard­ing the ex­ten­sion of the pres­i­den­tial term.

Head of KDP bloc main­tained that Pres­i­dent Barzani does not ac­cept ex­ten­sion of pres­i­den­tial term and he did not want to do so pre­vi­ously, but the sit­u­a­tion in Kur­dis­tan re­quired such a so­lu­tion.

It is worth men­tion­ing that Yusuf Mo­hammed men­tioned the de­tail of the meet­ing with Pres­i­dent Barzani say­ing that they dis­cussed the Kur­dis­tan Con­sti­tu­tion draft as some of the Kur­dish po­lit­i­cal par­ties ask the Par­lia­ment to amend some pro­vi­sions of it. He added that they also talked about the end of the cur­rent pres­i­den­tial term of Pres­i­dent Mas­soud Barzani.
