ERBIL — The Kurdistan Region Parliament is expected to convene on Thursday after the number of MPs required for a quorum decided to attend the session.
The parliament’s media department said in a statement on Wednesday that the required number of MPs for a quorum are ready to resume the parliamentary sessions, therefore, the parliament will be reconvened on September 14, after it has been adjourned since 2015.
The Kurdistan Region is going through a decisive situation in which the parliament should play its historic role, the statement reads.
This move by the parliament members comes as the Kurdistan Democratic Party and the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan have recently stepped up the efforts to reconvene the parliament together with the other factions. They held a meeting with Gorran on Tuesday, during which they have reportedly reached an initial agreement over the issue.
Officials said earlier that the parliament is very likely to be called into session on 14th or 15th September.
