The bloc said in a statement: “Today our Kurdish people are going through a sensitive and dangerous phase that has put the financial crisis and legal vacuum and the lack of social justice and the lives of citizens and social peace at the test of great danger, all due to the failed policy practiced by the local authority for twenty five years, , The failed power in the Kurdistan region created another political crisis with the federal government and the countries of the region and the international community is to raise the issue of the referendum at an inappropriate time, rather than address problems and improve the living situation of citizens and the achievement of national unity.
“The referendum, with all its shortcomings, falsifications and interventions, was at this time without creating an appropriate ground for it, without achieving national unity, in order to avoid dealing with the problems and continuing to monopolize power and plunder the country’s wealth more than ever. Our people and caused disappointment and resentment of the countries of the region and our friends, and became a pretext in the hands of some people and Chauvinism to stand against the legitimate demands of the citizens of Kurdistan. “

Moreover, these people have no right to declare themselves under this name, because if we have the votes they received in the elections or the parliamentary seats, there is a limited number of parties that do not represent all the citizens of Kurdistan “He said.

Development of regional institutions
He stressed that “our people are waiting for the owners of power in this region to develop the institutions of the Kurdistan region and turn them on national institutions, but they did not, and this step is a clear attempt and other obstruction of marginalization and neglect of the legitimate institutions in the Kurdistan region, and more monopoly of the political decision and political power, Their work is a pretext for those who hate our people and their enemies, to say that the Kurdish people do not deserve independence and are not prepared to run their affairs through legal and national institutions. “
He pointed out that “it is necessary to determine the Kurdistan Parliament of a body composed of national figures and competent to begin dialogue with Baghdad under the auspices of the United Nations and the international community to address the outstanding problems between the Kurdistan region and Baghdad within the framework of the Constitution.” “The Iraqi federal government and the cabinet review all decisions and recommendations issued before and after the referendum,” he said. “Decisions and recommendations that stand against the interests of the citizens of Kurdistan must be canceled.
The bloc stressed that “thanks are given to international attempts and initiatives and to respond to them, as well as to thank and respond to the attempts of religious authorities, parties and political figures to revive the spirit of coexistence and stability and to embody the national rights of the citizens of Kurdistan, in addition to canceling the political leadership of Kurdistan – And making the general elections in their legal time by the Supreme Commission for Elections and Referendum, under international supervision. “
