ERBIL, Kurdistan Region - Setting a date for the looming elections in the Kurdistan Region and forming an alliance for the Iraqi elections will be on top of the agenda of a visiting Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) to Sulaimani, said an official


A high-level KDP delegation is set to visit Sulaimani to welcome back Kosrat Rasul, acting Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) leader who returned on Saturday after being hospitalized for two months in Germany.

“The visit by the KDP politburo to the PUK is made for several reasons: welcoming Mr Kosrat back and some other important matters,” Dler Mawati, head of the PUK bloc in Kurdistan parliament told Rudaw.

He went on to add that “determining the timing of elections in Kurdistan and the question of forming an alliance for Iraqi elections will be the two most important questions of the meeting."

Rasul landed in the International Airport of Sulaimani late Saturday, two months after he was flown to Germany to seek medical treatment. He fell ill in early November in Sulaimani a day after attending Jalal Talabani’s memorial service. He underwent an emergency surgery in Sulaimani on November 11 for a stoppage of blood flow to his small intestine and a second surgery on December 15, a month after he was flown to Berlin for further treatment.

Iraq’s general elections are set to be held on May 12, 2018.

The PUK and KDP have in the past experienced running for elections in the Kurdistan Region and Iraq on joint lists.

Concerning the position of the parliament speaker which is left vacant after former speaker Yousif Mohammed from the Change Movement resigned on December 26, Mawati said the issue will not be discussed in the meeting.

“Filling this position requires dialogue with other parties too, which is why this issue will not be decided in this meeting.”
