KDP starts talks with par­ties to form ma­jor­ity cabi­net with­out Gor­ran

Kurds should take as much as ben­e­fit they can from the changes hap­pen­ing in the Mid­dle East, says se­nior KDP of­fi­cial

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Fol­low­ing the dis­solv­ing of its agree­ment with the Change Move­ment, Gor­ran, in the Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Gov­ern­ment, the Kur­dis­tan Demo­cratic Party, KDP, has of­fered a new pro­posal to the Kur­dish po­lit­i­cal par­ties to form a ma­jor­ity cabi­net and re­dis­tribute the par­lia­ment pres­i­dency posts and min­istries.

Fad­hil Mi­rani, Sec­re­tary of KDP Polit­buro, told the me­dia that Gor­ran has been a hin­der ahead of sta­bil­ity and pros­per­ity of Kur­dis­tan, adding that his party will start talks with the other par­ties in the next few days.

Mi­rani said af­ter last meet­ing of his party polit­buro that Gor­ran is no longer in the KRG cabi­net, adding that Gor­ran took the post of the Par­lia­ment Speaker based on the mu­tual KDP-Gor­ran cabi­net for­ma­tion agree­ment.

KDP of­fi­cials called Gor- ran min­is­ters and MPs not to re­turn to Er­bil to con­tinue their works. Then Prime Min­is­ter Barzani ex­plained every­thing in a meet­ing with the Gor­ran min­is­ters in a meet­ing in his of­fice.

Barzani told them that Gor­ran has been act­ing like an op­po­si­tion in the gov­ern­ment cabi­net and that it was not ac­cept­able.

The KDP has an­nounced that the se­cu­rity forces pre­vented the Par­lia­ment Speaker and Gor­ran MPs from en­ter­ing Er­bil be­cause it has been un­der huge pres­sure from its sup­port­ers.

Last week, the KDP of­fices were at­tacked and burned by an­gry pro­tes­tors who were stim­u­lated by Gor­ran sup­port­ers and mem­bers in sev­eral ar­eas in the prov­inces of Su­laimaniya and Hal­abja.

Ac­cord­ing to in­for­ma­tion re­vealed in Kur­dish me­dia out­lets, the KDP is plan­ning to give a big share to PUK and the Kur­dis­tan Is­lamic Union in the new cabi­net for­ma­tion.

Ali Awni, KDP lead­er­ship mem­ber, said that Gor­ran had an omi­nous plan to seize the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion in the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion and ex­tend the dis­ar­ray from other ci­ties to the cap­i­tal Er­bil and Duhok as well be­cause they ex­ploited it to col­lect many more votes. Mah­moud Mo­hammed, KDP polit­buro mem­ber and head of Press and Cul­tural In­sti­tu­tion of KDP, an­nounced that the KDP is a big num­ber in the po­lit­i­cal process in Kur­dis­tan, adding that it can­not be out.

He said that the KDP proved for Gor­ran that they can­not do what­ever they have in their mind and dreams. He went on his ex­pla­na­tion for the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion say­ing that Gor­ran de­nied the al­le­ga­tion af­ter one year of part­ner­ship in the cabi­net that it will with­draw from the gov­ern­ment.

Mo­hammed added that Gor­ran has had the same old am­bi­tion to act as an op­po­si­tion party. “Gor­ran em­pha­sized that they had been act­ing in the op­po­si­tion in or­der to reach power, that’s why Gor­ran does not want to with­draw from the cur­rent cabi­net.”

Mo­hammed shed light on the sen­si­tive and rapid changes that are hap­pen­ing in the Mid­dle East, liken­ing it to hap­pen­ings oc­curred in 1916 when the coun­tries were di­vided ac­cord­ing to the in­ter­ests of the su­per pow­ers of the time.

"Kurds should get ready to face the chal­lenges which are hap­pen­ing in the re­gion and take as much ben­e­fit they can as the US and its al­lies on one hand and the Rus­sians on the other try to show their pres­ence and ex­is­tence in the Mid­dle East," con­cluded Mr. Muham­mad.
