Today, Tuesday (September 5, 2023) , the leader of the Al-Fateh Alliance, Muhammad Mahdi Al-Bayati , expected that important changes would take place in the security leaders of Kirkuk Governorate, after the recent events in the governorate.
Al-Bayati said in an interview with "Baghdad Today", that "Kirkuk has gone through complex circumstances in the past days, and there are many challenges in its security scene, which imposes bold decisions by Baghdad to enhance stability and security for all components."
He added, "It is expected that changes will be made in the first level of the security sites in Kirkuk for three reasons, the most prominent of which is that the security leaders have a duty to impose security, and that the performance is not politicized, and that some officers do not deal with situations with a political or nationalist spirit," pointing out that "the city needs leaders." It is very far from the political file, and that the law be implemented on everyone without exception, otherwise there will be a major imbalance."
He pointed out that "any politicized security situation will not serve Kirkuk," stressing the need for "politics to be far from managing the security file, and to focus on stability, warding off the dangers of terrorism and crime, and applying the law."
Last Saturday evening, Kirkuk witnessed violent incidents against the backdrop of Kurdish demonstrations against the sit-in of the governorate's Arabs in front of the headquarters of joint operations and the blocking of the Kirkuk-Erbil road, refusing to hand over the headquarters to the Kurdistan Democratic Party, and the violence resulted in the death of 4 people and the injury of 15 people .
