Gorran, Komal, CDJ join forces for Iraqi elections in disputed areas

By Rudaw 11/1/2018
ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Three Kurdish opposition parties will team up to run on a joint list in Iraqi elections in the disputed areas.

The Change Movement (Gorran), Kurdistan Islamic Group (Komal) and the newly established Coalition for Democracy and Justice (CDJ) have decided to run in the upcoming Iraqi elections on a joint list in Kirkuk and other disputed areas.

Wriya Mohammed, a member of Gorran’s elections body confirmed the news to Gorran’s Sbeiy media, saying the three parties had reached a final decision.

They will run under the name Nishtiman, meaning Homeland. The three parties jointly visited Baghdad last week to discuss Erbil-Baghdad relations with Iraqi officials, including Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi.

Iraq is expected to hold parliamentary and provincial elections on May 12.

This is why we kurf will never get ahead because we are always divided and never united. We have party's who is working to benefit Iraq and Iran but not for kurds. Also as a proud kurd would I like to know why the KRG is silent about the people who sold kirkuk. they should be punished for what they did by putting them on trail. justice has not being served. Shame on thoes who sold kirkuk and shame on those who are silent.
