ERBIL — Kurdistan Region’s parliament should be called back into session even without the Change Movement (Gorran) if the party does not take a step forward in the process, said a Kurdish lawmaker for the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK).
“If Gorran will not take a step forward, it means the time has come for other political parties to reactivate the parliament together,” MP Abbas Fattah told BasNews.
He said that the political factions, including the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), the PUK and others, should tell the public that their attempts to convince Gorran were responded by the party’s reluctance to reactivate the parliament.
Due to political disputes, especially between the KDP and Gorran, the parliamentary sessions have been suspended since mid-2015. The KDP, however, offered to Gorran recently, with an unconditional proposal, to reactivate the parliament, but Gorran is yet to give a positive response.
