SULAIMANI (ESTA) — Kurdistan Parliament will convene on Monday (October 5), with the presence of senior officials including Prime Minister Masrour Barzani.

The parliament said in a communique on Saturday that the parliament would hold a session on Monday at the request of the head of the Council of Ministers to discuss reform, economic situation, public servants’ salaries and coronavirus.

The Region’s prime minister, deputy prime minister Qubad Talabani and minister of finance and economy Awat Janab will attend the session, the parliament said.

The officials are expected to discuss steps to implement reform law on salaries, pensions, grants, allowances and benefits, the economic situation in the Region and salary distribution, talks with the federal government, the situation in the disputed areas and steps to confront the coronavirus.

Last month, the prime minister called for a parliament’s session in accordance with Article 66 of Kurdistan Parliament’s by-laws.

The premier’s call came two days after 23 lawmakers signed a memo to ask the parliament’s presidency to bring the prime minister, deputy prime minister and minister of finance and economy to appear before the legislature.

Lawmakers from the Kurdistan Islamic Union, Kurdistan Islamic Group, Change Movement (Gorran), New Generation and Azadi blocs as well as independent MPs signed the memo.
