Baghdad today - Kirkuk
Member of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Muhammad Kamal, confirmed today, Saturday (December 2, 2023), that the Kurds agreed to restore the position of governor of Kirkuk .
Kamal said in an interview with “Baghdad Today” that “Kirkuk has a Kurdish majority in terms of population and politics .”
He added, "Iraq is a democratic country governed by a majority, and the position of governor of Kirkuk is like the rest of the sovereign positions that depend on a majority of seats, and therefore the position of governor will go to the Kurds ."
He pointed out that "a Kurdish agreement was reached to restore the position, and we are all confident that we will get half the number of seats in Kirkuk ."
He continued, "Logic says that the position must be restored, and other details related to the name are still early and will be resolved in due time ."
Kurdish politician Latif Al-Sheikh confirmed, on (November 13, 2023), that the Kurdish parties “if they do not unite in Kirkuk, they will lose the position of governor of Kirkuk .”
The sheikh said in an interview with “Baghdad Today” that “the Kurds constitute the population and political majority based on the previous results of the elections held in the province, whether the provincial council elections or the parliamentary elections .”
He added, "If the two Kurdish parties do not unite and form one bloc in the Kirkuk Provincial Council, they will lose the position to the Arab component ."
He pointed out that "the Kurdistan Democratic Party and the Patriotic Union, and even with them the new generation, must form an alliance immediately after the elections in Kirkuk to form a majority that enables them to form the local government. Otherwise, the situation of the Kurds will be complicated in Kirkuk. "
Kirkuk Governorate will be present among the governorates in which elections will be held on December 18th, in which no local elections have been held since 2005 due to political problems between the components of the governorate, which includes a mixture of Arabs, Turkmen, Kurds, and other minorities.
