End­ing To­tal­i­tar­i­an­ism Means End­ing Court Triv­i­al­i­ties

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS - By | Gazi Has­san

Un­like the fi­nan­cial cri­sis and the bru­tal war that the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion is wag­ing against Da’esh, some par­ties in­tend to move the po­lit­i­cal process to­wards fur­ther de­te­ri­o­ra­tion. The de­te­ri­o­ra­tion has started fol­low­ing the Gor­ranPUK deal. We’re all aware that the an­nounce­ment of the bi­lat­eral po­lit­i­cal deal evoked two provoca­tive mes­sages, the first, the deal tends to be a claimed con­sti­tu­tion for im­pos­ing cer­tain po­lit­i­cal will, which in­tends to be a sort of al­ter­na­tive for gov­ern­ment, author­ity and gen­eral le­git­i­mate prin­ci­ples; and the sec­ond, im­pos­ing will of par­lia­ment seat numbers. The men­tioned points cause KDP’s im­me­di­ate, clear and strong re­ac­tions.

At the same in­stant, the two par­ties pre­vi­ously had un­of­fi­cial po­lit­i­cal coali­tion with the other two Is­lamic par­ties prac­ti­cally against KDP. They used the par­lia­ment for shift­ing the bal­ance of power and iso­lat­ing the KDP, then at­tempt­ing to change the gov­ern­ing sys­tem tem­per­a­men­tally ac­cord­ing to their own po­lit­i­cal in­ter­est, claim­ing that they’ll turn Kur­dis­tan into a “field of pro­mot­ing democracy, elim­i­nat­ing the hur­dles be­fore achiev­ing the per­sonal, his­tor­i­cal and po­lit­i­cal wishes.” Mean­while, ra­tio­nal voices were be­ing heard in­side the po­lit­i­cal par­ties, though they were mi­nori­ties, and were of­ten ac­cused of be­ing KDP’s sup­ple­ment and were de­graded, which more likely seems to be ide­o­log­i­cal ter­ror and vi­o­lence.

Once again, in a public of­fi­cial speech in front of mem­bers of his party with a re­ac­tion against his sum­mon be­fore Er­bil’s courts, Naw­shir­wan Mustafa is­sued dire threats for dis­solv­ing the po­lit­i­cal com­mu­nity, not tak­ing into ac­count the real cir­cum­stances. When­ever the KDP and PUK held a meet­ing, Naw­shir­wan and Gor­ran would set off a po­lit­i­cal bomb for neg­a­tively pro­vok­ing the po­lit­i­cal sit­u­a­tion.

In his re­marks, Naw­shir­wan men­tions end­ing uni­lat­er­al­ism and achiev­ing the new bal­ance of power. He’s re­peat­ing the same story over, a story that he’s been telling over against Barzani’s fam­ily and Kur­dis­tan’s rev­o­lu­tion for over half a cen­tury, a story that de­nies a joint and power lead­er­ship, but rather works to­wards po­lit­i­cal dilemma, fur­ther de­te­ri­o­rat­ing in­ter­nal is­sues. It seems that this is a hate­ful, de­ceit­ful, di­vi­sive and power diminu­tive mind. The po­lit­i­cal bomb that was set off last week un­der the pre­text of “end­ing to­tal­i­tar­i­an­ism and the new bal­ance” might take the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion to­wards an­other round of trou­bles and po­lit­i­cal is­sues, aim­ing at cre­at­ing a com­plex po­lit­i­cal arena and po­lit­i­cal com­pli­ment against the court, and de­lay­ing the trial of Naw­shir­wan Mustafa who’s been ac­cused of ex­cit­ing car­ry­ing out at­tacks on con­sulates, tar­get­ing pipe­lines in Kur­dis­tan Re­gion. It aims at ob­sess­ing over the par­ties’ and Re­gion’s lead­er­ship with the in­ter­nal is­sues, pre­vent­ing them from tak­ing ad­van­tage of the trans­for­ma­tions go­ing on in the area. To say it hon­estly, in the “to­tal­i­tar­i­an­ism” talks, they want to ex­clude Pres­i­dent Barzani and the KDP in the lead­er­ship of this his­tor­i­cal age. The re­al­ity is telling us those neg­a­tive minds and at­ti­tudes have never gained suc­cess at any time. So even though the po­lit­i­cal par­ties were forcibly ob­sessed with an­other round of in­ter­nal is­sues, the po­lit­i­cal devel­op­ment will go on at this stage, be­cause there’s strong po­lit­i­cal will for ra­tio­nally deal­ing with the is­sues.
