    Baghdad Today - Baghdad
    Although the Kurdish forces, led by the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, obtained the highest number of seats in Kirkuk Governorate, with 5 seats for the “Kirkuk Our Strength and Our Will” coalition, which is composed of the Patriotic Union and some other Kurdish parties, as well as two seats for the Kurdistan Democratic Party, the Arabs and Turkmen lost They turn the equation upside down there.
    The Kurdish parties were relying heavily on the provincial council elections to restore Kirkuk and demonstrate their influence in the province, so much so that the province had the highest participation rates in the local elections as a result of national polarization between Arabs and Kurds there, after years of weak Kurdish influence in the province since 2007.
    After the results were announced, the Kurdish forces, led by the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, became “certain” that they had finally been able to regain the governorate and the position of governor, but the polarization of Arab-Turkmen may have a different opinion.
    The Arab leader in Kirkuk Governorate, Hatem Al-Asi, confirmed today, Thursday (January 25, 2024), that keeping the position of Kirkuk governor within the Arab component is “a guarantee of the stability of the city,” while he pointed to understandings to form a larger bloc with the Turkmen that would outperform the Kurds by one seat.
    Al-Asi told “Baghdad Today” that “the governorate, during the era of the Arab governor, witnessed political and security stability and high-level services were provided to the people of the city from all their components,” according to him.
    He added, "Whoever wants to administer Kirkuk must believe in the Iraqiness of the city and not shout racist terms that threaten the stability of the city, as Kirkuk is Iraqi and belongs to all components."
    Al-Asi explained, “The Arab component currently has 6 seats in the provincial council, and there are intensive dialogues with the Turkmen component to form the largest bloc consisting of 8 seats.”
    It is noteworthy that, according to the results of the Kirkuk Provincial Council elections, out of a total of 16 seats, two Kurdish parties won seven seats, the Arabs won six, while two seats went to the Turkmen component, in addition to the Christian quota seat.
    The Kirkuk Provincial Council consists of 16 members. The council holds its first session at the invitation of the governor within (15) days from the date of ratification of the election results. In the event that the governor does not convene the council, it will automatically convene on the 16th day.
    The first session is chaired by the oldest member of the Council, during which the President of the Council and his deputy must be elected by a majority of the Council’s votes (50 + 1), meaning they must receive the votes of nine Council members.
    But there is no legal paragraph explaining how long the Council can leave its session open if the two positions are not decided in the first session.
