Par­lia­ment seeks mech­a­nism to amend Con­sti­tu­tion

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Kur­dis­tan Par­lia­ment mem­bers are in dis­cus­sions in or­der to find a mech­a­nism to amend Kur­dis­tan Con­sti­tu­tion draft based on a spe­cial law. For that pur­pose, a com­mit­tee is planned to be formed by the PMs and other pro­fes­sional per­son­nel.

The Kur­dis­tan Con­sti­tu­tion draft had been one of the most con­tro­ver­sial sub­jects among the PMs in the pre­vi­ous Par­lia­ment round. But this time in­di­ca­tions can tell that there is a ten­dency among all the sides for reach­ing a so­lu­tion.

Fir­sat Sofy, an PM from the Kur­dis­tan Demo­cratic Party bloc, said the new mech­a­nism for amending the draft is to ap­prove of a spe­cial law un­der the name of Prepara­tory Law for Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Con­sti­tu­tion Ref­er­en­dum. For that pur­pose a com­mit­tee will be formed and pro­fes­sional peo­ple from inside and out­side of the Par­lia­ment can be­come mem­bers.

“The con­sti­tu­tion should be agreed upon by all the sides re­gard­less of po­lit­i­cal party in­ter­ests. Pro­fes­sional peo­ple will be given chance to talk on how to amend the draft,” Sofy said.

The gov­ern­ing sys­tem in Kur­dis­tan, the elec­tion of Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pres­i­dent and his au­thor­i­ties have been the most con­tro­ver­sial is­sues which will be dealt with in the draft.


Abubakir Hal­adni, another Par­lia­ment Mem­ber from Kur­dis­tan Is­lamic Party bloc said the Par­lia­ment has al­ready de­cided to form a com­mit­tee to in­tro­duce the re­quired changes in the draft.

He also said se­ri­ous at­tempts have to be made in or­der to pass the draft as soon as pos­si­ble. “The Con­sti­tu­tion can solve not only the in­ter­nal is­sues but also the prob­lems be­tween KRG and Iraqi Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment as well.” He noted.

The draft con­sti­tu­tion of Kur­dis­tan, which con­sists of 122 ar­ti­cles, has not been put in to ref­er­en­dum yet be­cause of the dif­fer­ent views on many of the para­graphs con­tained therein.
