KDP introduces new politburo members

SULAIMANI (ESTA) — New politburo of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) was introduced on Saturday after the party recently launched congress. 

The Central Committee of the KDP has carried out its first meeting following the 14th congress. They elected the new members of the politburo amid the meeting.

The elected members were Fadhil Mirani, Fuad Hussein, Zaeem Ali, Sidad Barzani, Hemin Hawrami, Pshtiwan Sadiq, Hiwa Ahmed Mustafa, Sarbast Lazgin, Zagros Fatah, Nawzad Hady, Amina Zkry and Ali Hussien, the KDP-affiliated media reported.

Esta has learned that the election took place far from the common legal ways of the political parties that they adopt. The president of the party has interfered in the election process.

The members were elected by the decision of the KDP President, Masoud Barzani

“In today’s central committee meeting, the new member of the politburo were elected by the decision of President Masoud Barzani,” read a Facebook post by newly elected KDP politburo member Hemin Hawrami.

“I thank President Barzani for that great trust,” he added.

On November, 3rd this year, the KDP reelected Masoud Barzani as President of the party after its congress had commenced.

It marked the 14th congress of the KDP since December 2010 during which Kurdistan Region President Nechirvan Barzani was reappointed as the first deputy of the party President, and Prime Minister Masrour Barzani was elected as the second deputy.

According to the KDP by-law, the congress should be held once every four years.

KDP has blamed the war against the Islamic State (ISIS) as well as the Covid-19 pandemic for the party’s unavailability to hold its congress for such a long while since 2010.

In 2018 when the latest parliamentary elections of the Kurdistan Region took place, KDP won 45 seats, occupying the top government positions, including the president, prime minister, and deputy parliament speaker.
