Mi­rani: What hap­pened in Par­lia­ment was a wrong in­ter­pre­ta­tion of pro­ce­dures

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

The Sec­re­tary of the Kur­dis­tan Demo­cratic Party ( KDP) Polit­buro, Fazil Mi­rani, said that what hap­pened in the Kur­dis­tan Par­lia­ment last week was a wrong in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the par­lia­men­tary pro­ce­dures. He also said KDP has pro­tected the in­ter­ests of the Kur­dish Peo­ple and will con­tinue to do so.

In a meet­ing with UK Gen­eral Con­sul in Er­bil, Mi­rani shed light on the re­cent po­lit­i­cal and se­cu­rity con­di­tions in Kur­dis­tan Re­gion and Iraq. "We need unity among the Kur­dish po­lit­i­cal par­ties as Kurds are fac­ing se­cu­rity is­sues with Is­lamic State groups and po­lit­i­cal is­sues with the Iraqi gov­ern­ment," noted Mi­rani.

Mi­rani crit­i­cized the pres­i­dency of the Kur­dis­tan Par­lia­ment for invit­ing in­ter­na­tional diplo­mats to at­tend in a par­lia­ment ses­sion in which a law pro­ject was dis­cussed. He said those peo­ple may only be in­vited in spe­cial ses­sions like a cer­e­mony in which a pres­i­dent swears a le­gal oath.

Mi­rani said KDP was the first win­ning party in the pre­vi­ous elec­tion, but never wanted to ig­nore the other po­lit­i­cal par­ties and al­ways wanted to share power with them.

On his part, UK Con­sul thanked Mi­rani for set­ting up the meet­ing and thanked peo­ple of Kur­dis­tan for be­ing pa­tient with the fi­nan­cial cri­sis in the Re­gion. He also paid his trib­ute to Pesh­merga forces and wished them suc­cess in the fight against the IS.
