A member of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Mahdi Abdul Karim, told Al-Iraqiya News, followed by the Iraqi News Agency (INA), that "the Democrat has expressed on several occasions his respect for the decisions of the Federal Court, but the decision to exclude Zebari was a political right for an important political stature."
He added, "The withdrawal of confidence from Zebari during his tenure as Minister of Finance does not condemn him because it was a political move against the background of rivalries and tension in the relationship between the center and the region, and he was acquitted of the files that were filed against him."
He stressed that "the House of Representatives should extend the period for applying for the position of the President of the Republic, which ended today, to allow the opportunity to present an alternative by the Kurdistan Democratic Party, which will have a meeting of its political office within the next twenty-four hours to deliberate on this file."
He pointed out that "the Democratic Party has experienced personalities who are able to assume the position of President of the Republic, and an alternative may be nominated, and it is up to the Democratic Party."
Regarding the possibility of negotiations between the Democratic Party and the National Union to agree on a consensual candidate, Abdul Karim said, “Everything is possible in politics, and there was a visit to the head of the Union Party, Pavel Talabani, to the head of the Democratic Party, Massoud Barzani, two days ago. Replacing Barham Salih as a rival candidate or introducing a figure who enjoys the consensus of the Kurds."
He continued, "We believe that if there is a door for negotiation, it may open within two days with the Union, but on the terms of the Democratic Party, and the party agreed with the Sadrist movement and the Sovereignty Alliance to support its candidate for the presidency, and he will be a candidate for the tripartite alliance between these parties."
