The three main opposition parties in the Kurdistan Region have called for the dissolution of the National Security Council set up this weekend by the governing Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP)  and Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK).

The opposition has called on the ruling parties to bring the matter before the Kurdistan parliament.

Rule no 4 of 2011 was passed in parliament last spring when the Kurdistan Region was going through a period of uprising.

The opposition have criticised the Council for holding extensive powers without being accountable to parliament. Furthermore, says their statement: “the Council can be used by the two ruling parties for their own purposes and objectives”.

    Opposition needs to forget about their ideological differences and have a stronger unified voice.
