Shawani said in a press conference held during the meeting, that “it was decided in the meeting, which was hosted by Pavel Jalal Talabani, President of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, to activate Article 140 of the Iraqi constitution, provided that a committee is formed for the same purpose to carry out its duties within a period of 10 days.”
He added, “The new government was formed as a result of a political agreement, one of its clauses included the implementation of Article 140 and the re-formation of the Supreme Committee for the implementation of that article, which has been suspended since 2014,” noting that “disabling the committee created a great void, and contributed to the re-Arabization of Kirkuk governorate and the cut-off areas.”

He explained that “the committee will begin its duties within a period of 10 days and will disclose to parliament the budget it needs to perform the duties entrusted to it, in order to allocate the necessary funds for it in the 2023 budget,” noting that “with the formation of that committee, the implementation of Article 140 will return to its normal course.”
