Prepa­ra­tion project of Kur­dis­tan con­sti­tu­tion ap­proved

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

On April 13, the Kur­dis­tan Par­lia­ment held a ses­sion dur­ing which it ap­proved the prepa­ra­tion project of the new Kur­dis­tan con­sti­tu­tion with a ma­jor­ity of 77 votes in ad­di­tion to an ap­proval of form­ing a com­mit­tee of 21 peo­ple.

The com­mit­tee's task will be pre­par­ing the draft con­sti­tu­tion law in or­der to be put to a ref­er­en­dum within 90 days.

At the end of the ses­sion, the Par­lia­ment speaker, Yusif Muham­mad Sadiq, con­grat­u­lated the Kur­dish peo­ple for the rat­i­fi­ca­tion of the project and said there is no doubt that ap­prov­ing this law is the first step to pave the road for na­tional com­pro­mise on the con­sti­tu­tion in Kur­dis­tan.

Ac­cord­ing to Dil­shad Shaa­ban, an MP, the com­mit­tee con­sists of pro­fes­sional peo­ple and MPs whose task will be pre­par­ing the draft of the con­sti­tu­tion within 90 days. "The 'Re­gion' word has been re­moved from Kur­dis­tan in the project be­cause there is a pos­si­bil­ity of putting the con­sti­tu­tion to a ref­er­en­dum in the dis­puted ar­eas as well."

Upon fin­ish­ing the prepa- ra­tion work, the con­sti­tu­tion draft will be voted on in­side the Par­lia­ment be­fore it is sub­mit­ted to the public opin­ion.
