Sunday 16/2/2020, Speaker of Iraqi Parliament, Mohamed al-Halbousi, will visit the Kurdistan Region.
A well-informed source told PUKmedia: “Today afternoon, Mohamed al-Halbousi, Speaker of the Council of Representatives, will arrive in Sulaymaniyah city, on a visit to the Kurdistan Region.”
“During his visit, al-Halbousi will meet political parties and officials in the Kurdistan Region to discuss the current situation in Iraq,” he added.
Al-Halbousi's visit comes amid ongoing efforts to form the new Iraqi federal government headed by Mohammed Tawfiq Allawi, who had confirmed that he would announce the ministerial formation this week.
Allawi had 1 month since his assignment date to form his government, which is a transitional government and its task is preparing for early elections.
On February 1 of 2020, the President of the Republic of Iraq, Dr.Barham Salih appointed, Mohammed Tawfiq Allawi to form the new Iraqi government after two months over the resignation of former PM Adil Abdul-Mahdi.
Former Iraqi PM Adil Abdul-Mahdi submitted resignation late November, following mass protests that have gripped Iraq since October, with mostly young protesters demanding a change in the political system.
