Kurds settle disputes, pave way to complete gov't

Kurdistan political powers have reached an agreement on the formation of the ninth government, which was delayed due to differences between these parties winning the election.

Gorran Movement signed an agreement with the party holding the majority of parliament seats, and has kept the post of deputy head of the Kurdistan region.

However, the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), which was supposed to participate in the government voiced rejection for not receiving an executive post in the presidency and called for introducing a second deputy for the president.

Gorran Movement refused the PUK's demand at the beginning.

Moreover, the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) is proceeding with the formation of the government, trying to get the support of the Kurdish parties, to move towards a government of national partnership.

The KDP has kept its share of posts including that of the president, and the prime minister, which KDP's Masrour Barzani currently holds.

Next week, an agreement would be signed between the KDP and the PUK, on the latter's posts in the new government, which were almost occupied, said a spokesman for the KDP Mahmoud Mohammad.

The PUK, the KDP and Gorran Movement will all hold a meeting soon to write the program of the new government, Mohammad said.
