Par­ties agree to keep Barzani pres­i­dent till 2017

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Mo­hammed Haji Mah­moud, leader of the Kur­dis­tan So­cial­ist Demo­cratic Party, says all par­ties have agreed that Massoud Barzani will re­main Kur­dis­tan’s Pres­i­dent till 2017.

Mah­moud says the four-par­ties have two op­tions, but they should have one united voice and opin­ion and sub­mit it to Kur­dis­tan Demo­cratic Party.

“All prob­lems are solved, …, and what the par­ties say now should be said af­ter 2017,” KSDP leader ar­gued. “Maybe the par­ties feel ashamed of say­ing that Barzani should re­main in his po­si­tion.”

Mah­moud said that the sit­u­a­tion is go­ing worse and that the po­lit­i­cal par­ties need to think of a so­lu­tion.

“Our peo­ple do not de­serve that we go from a meet­ing to another with­out a re­sult and an ex­pla­na­tion to peo­ple about what is hap­pen­ing in­side the meet­ing halls.

Talk­ing about the war against Is­lamic State ter­ror­ist or­ga­ni­za­tion, Mah­moud says ISIS is re­treat­ing since March and Pesh­marga forces are ad­vanc­ing. Re­cent land re­gains by Pesh­marga is a proof of that. “We have re­gained 11 vil­lages once, then another 12 vil­lages and another 19 vil­lages.”

He added that they have re­gained 40% of Kur­dis­tan’s soil from ISIS and now only 10% of Kur­dish lands is still un­der ISIS con­trol.

“With God’s help we will free these lands soon and will not al­low one cen­time­ter of Kur­dis­tan’s soil to stay un­der the con­trol of ISIS or any other in­vaders.”
