Erbil (Kurdistan 24) - The Kurdistan Parliament decided to resume its sessions in early June, according to a representative of the Kurdistan Democratic Party.
Parliamentarian Jia Sharif said in an interview with Kurdistan 24, that the decision came after the Kurdish forces unanimously agreed to resume parliamentary sessions on the second of next June.
Last Tuesday, the Presidency of the Kurdistan Parliament held a meeting with the parliamentary blocs to end 75 days of deadlock in Parliament following political differences over the parliamentary elections in the region.
Parliamentary elections are scheduled for October 1.
Sharif said that the fundamental differences between the political parties regarding the amendment of the Kurdistan Elections Law and the form of its commission "are still ongoing."
The Kurdistan Parliament must pass a new law to extend the work of the Electoral Commission, which expired in late 2019.
Parliamentarian Jia Sharif indicated that the political forces have not yet reached an agreement in this regard, indicating that the United Nations and European countries are calling for elections to be held on time.
Some forces are still trying to postpone the elections, but Sharif said that the Kurdistan Democratic Party is committed to holding the elections on schedule.
Two days ago, the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) held a closed-door meeting with representatives of the Patriotic Union, the Justice Group, the Change Movement, the Democratic Party, the Islamic Union and the New Generation Movement to exchange views on various issues and move away from controversial policies.
