The political bureau of the Kurdistan Democratic Party and the direct supervision of the party leader Massoud Barzani on Tuesday held a meeting to discuss the results of the Iraqi legislative elections.
After the meeting, the office issued a statement saying that some parties have doubts about the integrity of the elections, and the Kurdistan Democratic Party also has doubts in order to break the uncertainty and maintain security and stability, if the need to return the process of counting and sorting manually.
On the technical and technical problems that accompanied the public and private vote, the statement pointed out that the IHEC was supposed to take more preparations and train its personnel on the process.
The statement called on the parties and all Kurdish political parties to give priority to the interest of the people and the homeland on their personal and partisan interests, and the job grades and positions are a goal equal to the size of partnership, harmony and balance, and not top priorities of the talks between the Kurdistan Region and Baghdad.
Polling centers were closed in the Kurdish city of Sulaymaniyah until anger erupted over an unexpected sweep of the city’s dominant party. Arms clashes soon broke out between rival factions.
The night-time clashes subsided by Sunday morning as the Iraqi election commission counted the final results of the legislative elections.
But Kurdish opposition parties backed by their militants are demanding a re-election amid accusations of fraud. In that atmosphere, many fear that the regions in the Kurdistan region will become a battlefield between the parties.
