Gorran, KDP to make reforms in Kurdistan's next gov't: official


The Gorran Movement has agreed with the Kurdistan Democratic Party to carry out changes and reforms in Kurdistan's next government, Gorran's Dana Abd al-Karim said.

Further information about the kind of changes the parties are willing to make were not revealed to The Baghdad Post.

The meeting between the Gorran Movement and the KDP discussed the mechanism of forming the regional government, Abdul Karim said, expressing hope that political parties forming the government would be able to serve the Kurdish people.

The KDP has been engaged in numerous rounds of discussions since late last year with the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) and the Gorran Movement to outline a possible coalition government. However, little progress has been recognized.

The KDP won 45 seats out of 111 in the Kurdistan Regional Parliament in the September 2018 elections. The PUK followed with 21 seats, and Gorran came in third with 12 seats, halving their gains from the previous election.
