ERBIL — Presidency of the Kurdistan Region Parliament is set to meet on Tuesday this week to discuss the resumption of the parliamentary sessions nearly 75 days after the chamber has been closed.
Director of the Parliament’s Media Department, Saman Ahmed, told Kurdistan 24 that the presidency will also meet with the head of parliamentary blocs to design the upcoming sessions.
The legislature has held no sessions since over two months ago amid disputes over the parliamentary elections scheduled for October this year.
The Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) and its allies support holding the elections on time, which requires renewal of the mandate of the Kurdistan Independent High Electoral Commission at the parliament.
However, the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) favors amending the election law before proceeding with the vote.
The KDP blames Speaker Rewaz Fayiq, from the PUK, for the suspension of the parliament in this critical times.
