Baghdad today – special
On Friday, August 17, 2018, the PUK’s external relations official, Taha Namik, said that the leadership of the ruling parties, the Union and the Kurdistan Democratic Party, had agreed with the Kurdish opposition parties: “Change Movement, Islamic Group, Islamic Union, Alliance for Democracy And justice, ” to go to a unified delegation to Baghdad to discuss the formation of the government.
“The Kurdish delegation will visit Baghdad after the holiday of Eid al-Adha to discuss the formation of the largest bloc,” Namik said in an interview with Baghdad today that “the Kurds are seeking during this period to unite their ranks and agree on common points based on the supreme interest of the Kurdish people before going to Baghdad”.
He added that “there is guidance from the leadership of the two parties (the Democratic Union), to reunite the Kurdish house and agreement with the opposition parties on the basic points, and go to a joint delegation represents the demands of the Kurds to enter alliances to form the next government.
“We will visit the four opposition parties in an attempt to reach an agreement with them, because this represents a strength of the Kurds and not dispersing the votes in negotiations with other alliances,” he said.
He pointed out that “until the moment there is no official alliance to form the largest bloc and all are in the process of negotiations and dialogues and we are ready to negotiate with all provided that the Kurdish interest is the basis.”
