Baghdad today - Kirkuk
The leader of the Orouba Alliance, Hatem Al-Assi, confirmed today, Tuesday (December 5, 2023), that the Arab lists in Kirkuk will unite after the upcoming local elections.
Al-Asi said in an interview with “Baghdad Today” that “any disagreement between the Arabs in Kirkuk will harm the interests of the constituents, and therefore there is an agreement on the unity of the position and the formation of a unified list in the provincial council.”
He added, "It is expected that the number of seats for the Arab component in Kirkuk will be between 6 and 7 seats, and if they unite with other lists, they will form the majority that will allow them to achieve a majority."
Al-Assi pointed out that "everyone in Kirkuk praises the current administration of the governorate, which has achieved tangible progress in Kirkuk's service situation, in addition to paying attention to many files."
Kirkuk Governorate will be present among the governorates in which elections will be held on December 18, 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.
