Kurdistan Region parliament’s session postponed to Friday: lawmaker
A session of the Kurdistan Region Parliament has been postponed until Friday, September 15, a lawmaker said on Wednesday.

The session was postponed to Friday in accordance with parliament’s law, the head of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) faction in the Kurdistan Parliament, Begard Talabani, told NRT.

According to Article 20 of Parliament’s law, the lawmakers should be informed two days before holding a session of parliament.

The Senior Assistant to Masoud Barzani, Hemin Hawrami, and PUK-affiliated media announced on Wednesday Kurdistan Parliament would hold a session on Thursday, September 14.

A joint delegation from the KDP and the PUK met with a Gorran delegation on Tuesday to discuss the reactivation of Kurdistan Parliament on September 14.

The Kurdistan Region’s political crisis escalated in 2015 after the five major political parties failed to reach an agreement on the presidency in October 2015.

Following nine rounds of failed talks, demonstrations erupted across the eastern parts of the region, during which angry protestors set fire to a number of KDP offices.

The region’s parliament has also been in recess since Speaker Yousif Mohammed, a Gorran party member, was blocked from entering the Kurdistan Region’s capital city, Erbil, where the parliament building is located.
