Pres­i­dent Barzani urges par­ties to solve is­sues through di­a­logue

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

In a state­ment re­leased on June 29, Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pres­i­dent, Ma­soud Barzani, called on po­lit­i­cal par­ties in Kur­dis­tan Re­gion to solve the cur­rent is­sues, in­clud­ing the pres­i­dency of the re­gion.

“I call on the po­lit­i­cal par­ties to re­turn to ne­go­ti­a­tions and di­a­logue, be­cause only di­a­logue can tackle na­tional is­sues, in­clud­ing the pres­i­dency,” Barzani said.

Barzani added "I have done all my pri­mary works through con­sen­sus and con­sult­ing with oth- ers. I have re­spected the con­sen­sus and agree­ments of the par­ties,"

Barzani said he ap­proved some bills, de­spite hav­ing notes on them, just to keep the unity of among the po­lit­i­cal blocs.

Mem­bers of the Kur­dis­tan Par­lia­ment held the first ses­sion to read a se­ries of res­o­lu­tions pro­posed by Kur­dish par­ties to amend the re­gion’s pres­i­den­tial law on June 23.

The Pa­tri­otic Union of Kur­dis­tan (PUK), Change Move­ment (Go­ran), Kur­dis­tan Is­lamic Union and Kur­dis­tan Is­lamic Group each sub­mit­ted a ver­sion of an amend­ment to the par­lia­ment on the cur­rent pres­i­den­tial law.

Barzani called the ses­sion and res­o­lu­tions a “Threat to the ba­sis of agree­ment and di­a­logue,” as the new amend­ments to the ex­ist­ing law call for the pres­i­dent to be ap­pointed by par­lia­ment, in­stead of by multi-party con­sen­sus.

“More than any other time, we need agree­ment, unity and di­a­logue to­day.” Barzani said
