Nechir­van Barzani: Con­sti­tu­tion is for all the peo­ple of Kur­dis­tan

The Kurdish Globe - - FRONT PAGE -

The Kur­dis­tan Demo­cratic Party (KDP) has formed a high-level del­e­ga­tion led by deputy to the Head of the party, Nechir­van Barzani, plan­ning to visit the po­lit­i­cal par­ties to dis­cuss the pres­i­den­tial law.

The KDP del­e­ga­tion vis­ited its tra­di­tional ally Pa­tri­otic Union of Kur­dis­tan of for­mer Iraqi Pres­i­dent Jalal Tal­a­bani and Change Move­ment, known as Gor­ran, in the city of Su­laimani yesterday.

The day be­fore, the del­e­ga­tion vis­ited the Kur­dis­tan Is­lamic Union and was wel­comed by the party leader. Fol­low­ing the meet­ing, a press con­fer­ence was ar­ranged for both Barzani and Mo­hammed Faraj, the KIU leader.

Barzani de­scribed the meet­ing as “pos­i­tive” and hailed the role of Faraj in the po­lit­i­cal land­scape of Kur­dis­tan, par­tic­u­larly af­ter the par­lia­men­tary ses­sion held in June 23rd to dis­cuss the amend­ment of the pres­i­den­tial law.

“The main con­di­tion of the par­ties is con­sen­sus and reach­ing a com­mon un­der­stand­ing over the is­sue. The con­sti­tu­tion is not writ­ten for only one per­son. It is for all the com­po­nents, and their in­ter­ests should be taken into con­sid­er­a­tion,” Barzani said.

“We should think of a con­sti­tu­tion which suits all, not only one per­son. It should be writ­ten based on the peo­ple’s in­ter­ests.”

Mas­rour Barzani, the Head of the Na­tional Se­cu­rity Coun­cil, was ex­pected to com­pany the del­e­ga­tion. But ac­cord­ing to some sources, he was vis­it­ing the front­lines of the Kur­dish Pesh­marga forces near Mo­sul Dam.

Speak­ing in press con­fer­ence, deputies to head of KDP and PUK stressed that the po­lit­i­cal sys­tem of the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion should be par­lia­men­tary. Re­gard­ing the con­sti­tu­tion, Barzani said that it it should be writ­ten for all the peo­ple of Kur­dis­tan, not only for one per­son.

Barzani also cited that the KDP dis­cussed the is­sue of pres­i­den­tial term with the PUK and will do so with other po­lit­i­cal par­ties. He said that they have to reach an agree­ment over the is­sues.
