ERBIL — The Kurdistan Islamic Union (KIU) has decided to take part in reactivation of Kurdistan Region parliament which has been suspended for political disputes since late 2015.
Following a meeting between his party’s leadership with a delegation from the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), KIU Spokesperson Hadi Ali told reporters that they have mutual understanding with the KDP over the issues pertaining to the parliament.
He confirmed that KIU lawmakers will attend parliamentary sessions once it is decided to reconvene.
Ali also called on the Change Movement (Gorran) and the Kurdistan Islamic Group (KIG) to participate in the efforts and send their MPs to the sessions.
Kurdish political parties have recently stepped up efforts to reactivate the parliament all together after breaking their prolonged political impasses. The parliament is expected to reconvene on 14th or 15th September.
