Baghdad.. A press conference for the Kurdistan Democratic candidate for the presidency of the Republic

The Kurdistan Democratic Party’s candidate for the presidency, Hoshyar Zebari, is scheduled to hold a press conference today, Sunday, in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

The spokeswoman for the Kurdistan Democratic bloc in the Iraqi parliament, Vian Dakhil, announced this in a tweet on her Twitter account

“We call on interested media to take this into account,”

Dakhil wrote, “Mr. Hoshyar Zebari, candidate of the Kurdistan Democratic Party for the position of President of the Republic of Iraq, will hold a press conference at 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, February 13, 2022 at the headquarters of Mr. Masoud Barzani in the Green Zone.”

And the Iraqi Federal Court decided, last Wednesday, to set, today, Sunday, the date for pleading the case against accepting the election of candidate Hoshyar Zebari for the post of President of the Republic, after suspending the procedures for his election to the position in Parliament after examining a lawsuit of allegations and accusations dating back to 2016.

And the Federal Court said in a brief statement, that it had set Sunday, February 13, as the date for the pleading regarding the lawsuit against the acceptance of Zebari’s candidacy.

Zebari, who is one of 25 candidates, still has great chances of winning the presidency, especially since he is supported by an alliance that includes al-Sadr and Sunni forces, as well as the Kurdistan Democratic Party, which came fourth in the October elections with 31 seats.

And the Iraqi parliament has already failed to elect a new president for the country because most of the blocs boycotted the session that was dedicated to electing the president of the republic until the political stalemate is resolved.

The election of the President of the Republic was postponed until further notice following the series of boycotts announced by the Sadrist bloc, the Democratic Party bloc, the “Sovereignty” coalition, and then the coordination framework, which are the weighing blocs in the Iraqi parliament.

For his part, an adviser to the Kurdish leader, Massoud Barzani, announced that there is no basis for the propaganda circulating about Zebari’s withdrawal from the candidacy for the presidency.

While Masoud Haidar, in a tweet on his Twitter account, reconfirmed the date of the press conference, for Zebari, he wrote: “Disclaimer, there is no basis for the propaganda circulating about withdrawing from his candidacy for the presidency.”
