Unification Discussed by Kurdish Region President

As reported by KurdSat on 18 July, the Kurdistan Region President Mas’ud Barzani “discussed the progress being made toward the unification of the Kurdish administrations.” Barzani discussed this topic at a meeting with Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) officials in Al-Sulaymaniyah.

“Barzani believes that the PUK and the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) should act as pioneers in unifying their administrations,” the report says. “There must be one authority, one government—a government functioning under the rule of law,” he said.

The report says that, in regards to the ongoing efforts to unify the ministries of the two administrations, Barzani feels that “the officials are close to reaching agreement on the establishment of a joint Supreme Court and Judiciary Council for Kurdistan.” The “issue of merging the peshmerga, police and, security departments are still being discussed,” the report states.
