ERBIL — Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) and Change Movement (Gorran) are set to hold a bilateral meeting today at Gorran’s headquarters in Sulaymaniyah to discuss reconvening the parliament and the independence vote.
Hemin Hawrami, Senior Assistant to Kurdistan Region’s President, said in a tweet that a KDP delegation will meet with the Change Movement today at 11am in Sulaymaniyah for direct talks over the upcoming independence referendum.
Arif Roushdi, a senior advisor to KDP’s politburo, revealed to BasNews earlier that the imminent independence referendum and reactivation of Kurdistan Region Parliament are on top of the agenda of the meeting.
The meeting comes amid preparations for the independence vote in Kurdistan which is set for 25th September this year.
Except Gorran and Kurdistan Islamic Group, all other political parties active in the region took part in the meeting in which the decision was made over the referendum timing.
Gorran previously proposed the postponement of the plan in hopes of finding a solution to its disputes with the KDP over the reactivation of the parliament.
