The Patriotic Union of Kurdistan bloc in the Kurdistan Parliament on Tuesday confirmed that a constitutional vacuum exists in the Kurdistan Region, calling on the political parties to reach consensus towards drafting the constitution.
"The constitution of the Kurdistan Region is one of the important and sensitive issues ... the Kurdistan Region was unable to write its own constitution, although the Kurds participated in writing the Iraqi constitution only two years after the fall of the Baathist regime," Ziyad Jabbar, head of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan bloc in the Kurdistan Parliament told PUKmedia.
He added, "a committee was formed in the previous parliamentary session on the constitution and wrote 74 articles, but work stopped due to circumstances that arose."
He stressed the need for the constitution to be for all the people of Kurdistan, not just for the political parties in the Kurdistan Region.
Two days ago, the city of Sulaymaniyah witnessed a forum entitled "Towards a Democratic Constitution for the Kurdistan Region", with the wide participation of academics, jurists and politicians.
