KDP: Ef­forts for an In­de­pen­dence Ref­er­en­dum Should Be In­ten­si­fied

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

The Kur­dis­tan Demo­cratic Party (KDP) Lead­er­ship Coun­cil held a meet­ing on Thurs­day and dis­cussed a range of is­sues, in­clud­ing a ref­er­en­dum on Kur­dish in­de­pen­dence as well as in­ter­nal re­forms within the party.

Ali Tatar, a mem­ber of KDP's polit­buro told BasNews that KDP Coun­cil of Lead­er­ship dis­cussed the sit­u­a­tion in Iraq and the wider re­gion, par­tic­u­larly the lat­est po­lit­i­cal ten­sions in Baghdad.

The coun­cil also fo­cused on the re­forms within KDP, Tatar stated. “The re­form pack­age in­tro­duced in the pre­vi­ous reg­u­lar congress of the party has not yet been put into prac­tice. The meet­ing there­fore made a de­ci­sion to im­ple­ment the pack­age in or­der to make some changes in the ad­min­is­tra­tion of the party.”

In a state­ment re­leased by the KDP af­ter­wards, the party crit­i­cises the po­lit­i­cal cri­sis in the cen­tral gov­ern­ment, say­ing that some frac­tions have been in­ter­pret­ing the con­sti­tu­tion in ac­cor­dance to their sec­tar­ian in­ter­ests, which can pose se­ri­ous threat to the whole Iraqi po­lit­i­cal process, and ad­versely af­fect the anti-ter­ror­ism ef­forts.

Re­gard­ing the cur­rent po­lit­i­cal and se­cu­rity sit­u­a­tion in Kur­dis­tan Re­gion, KDP Lead­er­ship Coun- cil in­sists that the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion is favourable for the peo­ple of Kur­dis­tan to de­cide on their fu­ture, “there­fore, ef­forts for hold­ing a ref­er­en­dum on Kur­dish in­de­pen­dence should be in­ten­si­fied.”
