A member of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, Tariq Jawhar, said, "The issue of naming positions is not only related to the union, but is part of the political process in which consensus and agreement is supposed to be drawn up on its map between the political forces representing the Kurdish, Shiite and Sunni components."
He added, "There is a deepening of differences, whether in the Shiite or Kurdish house, and the process began with the election of the Speaker of the House of Representatives and his two deputies, and the President of the Republic is supposed to be elected on the seventh or eighth of this February, before assigning him to a candidate for prime minister to form a new government within 30 days."
He pointed out that "there is a current political blockage and pressures on the blocs and brothers in the Sadrist movement have reached a conviction not to participate in the session to nominate the President of the Republic and to suspend negotiations, and personally we imagine that they opened the door to a serious dialogue between the main political forces, whether between the Patriotic Union and the Kurdistan Democratic Party or the current and the framework." coordination".
And he added, "The Federal Court stressed that the vote in the presidential election session must have a quorum of two-thirds of the total number of members of the House of Representatives, and this created a new atmosphere for the political process.

He stressed that "the National Union adheres to its candidate, Barham Salih, and the objections to the Democratic candidate, Hoshyar Zebari, were expressed by blocs, and there are 23 other candidates for the position. The second, which requires the votes of half of those present for the session, and not two-thirds of the members of Parliament, as in the first round.”
