Raising Kurdish flag 'constitutional right': MP

Almas Fadel
Parliament representative for PUK, Almas Fadel, affirmed Saturday that raising the Kurdish flag over buildings in Kirkuk is a constitutional right.

Fadel’s remarks came after a meeting with Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi about the situation in Kirkuk and the issue of raising the Kurdish flag over the headquarters of Kurdish political parties and government buildings.

“As representatives from Kirkuk, we are totally convinced that raising the Kurdish flag is a legal and constructional right,” Fadel said.

“Political conflicts and disagreements should not continue in the governorate, we must refer to the constitution and the federal court to solve these issues,” she added.
