ERBIL — The Change Movement (Gorran) and Kurdistan Islamic Group (KIG) have withdrawn from the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) as the political deadlock in the region remains unsolved.
According to Gorran media outlets, the political parties on Wednesday came to the decision after days of discussion over the issue.
The KIG and Gorran will be asking their members in ministerial and managerial positions of the KRG to abandon their offices.
However, the move is understood as rather a bargaining chip for influencing the public opinion as parliamentary and presidential elections in the Kurdistan Region are fast approaching.
Earlier the week, the KRG sent a letter to the parliament, calling for legal procedures and a date to hold the elections provided it will happen in “no more than three months”.
