ERBIL (Kurdistan24) – Sarbast Lezgin, a member of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) Politburo and head of Dohuk's KDP Organizational office, revealed on Tuesday, May 28, the anticipated timeline for the upcoming Kurdistan Region's parliamentary elections.

In an interview with Kurdistan24, Lezgin stated, “The dialogue with the concerned parties in Baghdad is ongoing, involving the Commission, the Judiciary, the Federal Court, and the political parties. Some changes have already occurred, and others are imminent.”

Regarding the scheduling of the new election date, Lezgin mentioned, “The president of the region is expected to set a new date. We anticipate that the elections will be held between October and November, contingent upon agreements with the Commission and political parties in the region.”

Lezgin also discussed the acceptance of the KDP’s conditions, noting, “Some conditions were accepted, and some changes were made. Perhaps not everything will align with our preferences, but the changes are a result of the KDP’s firm stance. Without our defense and position, many of the technical methods, voting, and vote counting processes would not have been addressed.”

The upcoming elections are crucial for the political landscape of the Kurdistan Region, and ongoing negotiations aim to ensure a fair and transparent electoral process.
