KDP of­fi­cial: con­sti­tu­tion is for the fu­ture of Kur­dis­tan

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

The Kur­dis­tan Par­lia­ment Speaker, Yusuf Mo­hammed, an­nounced that they are work­ing si­mul­ta­ne­ously on draft­ing the con­sti­tu­tion and re­solv­ing the is­sue of the pres­i­den­tial term. He showed op­ti­mism that the Par­lia­ment can fi­nal­ize both very soon. Mo­hammed led a par­lia­men­tary del­e­ga­tion to visit the Kur­dis­tan Demo­cratic Party (KDP) polit­buro.

The del­e­ga­tion in­cluded deputy to Speaker Jaa’far Imenki and Fakhradin Qaaidr, Sec­re­tary of the Par­lia­ment. It was wel­comed by Fad­hil Mi­rani, the Sec­re­tary of the KDP.

Af­ter the meet­ing be­tween the two par­ties, Mi­rani and Mo­hammed held a press con­fer­ence and spoke about the con­tent of the meet­ing.

Mi­rani stated that the na­tional and po­lit­i­cal is­sues have to be solved far from point scor­ing and a po­lit­i­cal con­sen­sus should be made on the sen­si­tive is­sues.

At the be­gin­ning of the press con­fer­ence, Mo­hammed an­nounced: “We talked about the steps that have been taken and those which should be taken in the fu­ture so as to im­prove the po­lit­i­cal process in Kur­dis­tan. We are in­tend­ing to make the cur­rent bur­den eas­ier on the peo­ple of Kur­dis­tan while we are fight­ing the ter­ror­ists of the Is­lamic State.”

In ad­di­tion, Mo­hammed added that the meet­ings of the par­lia­men­tary del­e­ga­tion with the dif­fer­ent par­ties have made the ground well pre­pared for more ra­tio­nal dia­logue, adding that legal pro­ce­dures have also taken to solve ev­ery­thing through law.

The aim of the meet­ing with the KDP team was to reach a con­sen­sus re­gard­ing the na­tional is­sues such as con­sti­tu­tion and the pres­i­den­tial term.

The Par­lia­ment Speaker re­vealed that a com­mit­tee is ex­pected to be formed con­sist­ing of 21 mem­bers to re­view and re­vise the cur­rent con­sti­tu­tion draft. Mo­hammed went on and said that the po­lit­i­cal blocs in the Par­lia­ment are dis­cussing the for­ma­tion of the com­mit­tee and the Pres­i­dent of Kur­dis­tan should ap­prove it.

The KDP of­fi­cial on his part said that his party is happy to host such a del­e­ga­tion, aim­ing to solve the na­tional is­sues. Mi- rani said: “Let’s our top pri­or­ity be the pro­tec­tion of the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion and its achieve­ments.”

Re­gard­ing the KDP stance on th­ese two sig­nif­i­cant is­sues, Mi­rani de­clared that his party fol­lows a method to co­op­er­ate with the Par­lia­ment and hailed the role of the par­lia­ment presi- dency.

He fur­ther added that: “We, the par­lia­ment pres­i­dency and all other po­lit­i­cal par­ties are think­ing about pro­tect­ing the se­cu­rity and sta­bil­ity of the Re­gion. We will strive to in­crease the har­mony be­tween the par­ties and reach a com­mon un­der­stand­ing.”

Mi­rani also said that some peo­ple say the con­sti­tu­tion is for the KDP while we say it is for all the peo­ple of Kur­dis­tan, adding that hav­ing dif­fer­ent views of other par­ties over the cur­rent is­sues is some­thing nor­mal.

“We are dis­cussing ev­ery­thing very pa­tiently in favour of the peo­ple. We are striv­ing to come up with a con­sti­tu­tion and pres­i­den­tial sys­tem for Kur­dis­tan,” con­cluded Fad­hil Mi­rani.
