ERBIL— Due to an internal regulation, Kurdistan Parliament will reopen on Friday, not Thursday as it was scheduled.
The legislative body is due to hold its first session after almost two years of being closed down over political differences.
Speaking to BasNews, Siraj Ahmed, a lawmaker from the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), stated according to the parliamentary procedures, 48 hours ahead of any session the MPs should sign for attending the meeting.
The number of the signatories exceeds the required quota but the 48 hours limit will not be met by Thursday, Ahmed said.
He added they do not wish for any objections against the session, therefore, they have decided to postpone the meeting to Friday evening.
Upon a ruling by Senior Kurdistan Referendum Council, the legislative body was due to reopen on Thursday.
The council is striving for further unanimity among Kurdistan parties ahead of the imminent referendum on independence of Kurdistan, which will run on 25th September. .
