A New Po­lit­i­cal Phase will Be­gin af­ter Re­strict­ing Gor­ran’s Hor­ri­fy­ing Ac­tions

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS - By Gazi Has­san

Af­ter form­ing KRG’s eighth cabi­net based on com­mon work and in­clu­sive­ness, Kur­dis­tan passed through the worst of its times of mis­trust and con­flict be­tween the par­ties. The broad­based gov­ern­ment didn’t seem to be de­voted to broad ser­vices and im­prov­ing the dif­fer­ence of po­lit­i­cal opin­ion and ide­olo­gies. Specif­i­cally, the Gor­ran Move­ment was putting pres­sures and even ex­ploit­ing the gov­ern­ment’s in­sti­tu­tions for in­cit­ing peo­ple and stir­ring up their emo­tions. Thus, things reached a level that ex­ter­nal in­ter­ven­tion, as of­fi­cials in Suleimani Prov­ince stated, could ac­tively step in the made-up riots and lead Suleimani Prov­ince to­wards in­sta­bil­ity and dis­or­der. Gor­ran Move­ment it­self did its best to re­tal­i­ate against the KDP through in­cit­ing peo­ple in the mass me­dia, the Par­lia­ment and the gov­ern­ment. Gor­ran man­aged to change the other three po­lit­i­cal par­ties’ at­ti­tude through­out psy­cho­log­i­cal panic and in­ter­ven­ing in PUK’s af­fairs, in­tim­i­dat­ing the Is­lamic Union and the Is­lamic Group, to the level of cre­at­ing a semi con­flict­ing-front ide­o­log­i­cally to stand against Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pres­i­dency.

On both Au­gust 19 and July 23, Gor­ran tested it­self un­der the name of ma­jor­ity dic­ta­tor­ship of the four par­ties, and wanted to put KDP in a se­ri­ous de­fend­ing po­si­tion. Then dur­ing nine suc­ces­sive meet­ings, be­side its de­nial of eth­nic and reli­gious com­po­nents of Kur­dis­tan that have rep­re­sen­ta­tives in Kur­dis­tan Par­lia­ment, it spoiled the meet­ings as well. That means Gor­ran had al­ready made its de­ci­sion to cre­ate chaos and dis­or­der in Kur­dis­tan Re­gion.

Gor­ran in­vited Iran’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive to the par­lia­men­tar­ian coup of last July to threaten the KDP and sup­port them. They in­cited peo­ple to at­tack KDP’s of­fices in most of ci­ties and towns of Suleimani Prov­ince. As KDP closed down its of­fices and handed them to the po­lice and the se­cu­rity forces, Gor­ran’s plot for hav­ing civil­ians and peo­ple killed was foiled.

The slo­gans of Gor­ran’s rep­re­sen­ta­tives and the peo­ple who cre­ated chaos dur­ing the last few months were sim­i­lar. Two KDP mem­bers were killed in the first two days of the protests, and six of­fices were burned down, adding to the dam­ag­ing some other of­fices. They even at­tacked houses of some mem­bers of the party. This was a se­ri­ous threat. In this case, KDP had to either sur­ren­der to the de facto by ac­cept­ing Gor­ran’s plot and hand over Kur­dis­tan to the chaos and dis­or­der and the ex­ter­nal hand that want to turn Kur­dis­tan into a zone un­der its con­trol, or it should put a limit and stop the risks. KDP lead­er­ship de­cided to end the chaos. The prob­lems were con­nected with the wrong poli­cies of Gor­ran and its MPs. Af­ter stop­ping Speaker of the Par­lia­ment, the chaos stopped from the first mo­ments, and a kind of sta­bil­ity was re­stored in Sulie­mani Prov­ince as if the ri­ot­ers were be­ing di­rected from the Speaker of Par­lia­ment’s car con­voy. The ri­ot­ers’ way to at­tack and burn KDP’s of­fices was blocked just af­ter that.

Now is­sues have com­pletely changed. The Pa­tri­otic Union of Kur­dis­tan and Is­lamic Union of Kur­dis­tan stated that the only is­sue they had agreed with Gor­ran was a tem­po­ral is­sue re­lated to (Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pres­i­dency). It means they have no com­mon re­spon­si­bil­i­ties to­gether in the pub­lic pol­icy and their com­mon works will end. Con­se­quently, the prob­lems are mov­ing quickly to­wards sta­bi­liza­tion and res­o­lu­tion by suit­able and nat­u­ral means.

So re­strict­ing Gor­ran’s neg­a­tive ten­den­cies will ben­e­fit Kur­dis­tan in the fol­low­ing ways:

1- The na­tional unity, which was un­der threat, will move to­wards sta­bi­liza­tion.

2-No ex­ter­nal hands will be al­lowed to cre­ate chaos.

3-The me­dia will no longer pro­vide the au­di­ence with news of desta­bi­liza­tion of se­cu­rity and so­cial peace, and will longer play the role that lead to wors­en­ing of peo­ple’s psy­chol­ogy.

4-The main par­ties such as (KDP and PUK) will move to­wards a mu­tual un­der­stand­ing and calm­ing down the sit­u­a­tion and close­ness.

5-KRG will get rid of the po­lit­i­cal and an­ar­chis­tic mines that Gor­ran was us­ing as the main goal.

Af­ter KDP’s step, new op­por­tu­nity has risen in Kur­dis­tan so that all par­ties can prac­ti­cally take part in build­ing Kur­dis­tan Re­gion, not dig­ging pits for the gov­ern­ment. A good po­lit­i­cal op­por­tu­nity has emerged for the par­ties to re­con­sider their wrong poli­cies they adopted pre­vi­ously. A good op­por­tu­nity has risen that in­stead of re­tal­i­a­tion and desta­bi­liz­ing the se­cu­rity and so­cial peace, works should be done to­gether for pro­vid­ing ser­vices to the peo­ple, for re­forms and uni­fy­ing the Pesh­merge. It’s true that the steps KDP has taken are hold­ing his­tor­i­cal re­spon­si­bil­ity, but bound­ing Gor­ran’s hor­ri­fy­ing ten­den­cies will lead to a new era of sta­bil­ity and com­mon work.
