Kurdistan Democratic Party Denies Allegations of Election Postponement Request

In a statement released on Monday, Mahmood Mohammed, the spokesperson of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), vehemently refuted recent claims suggesting the party's request to postpone the upcoming parliamentary elections in the Kurdistan Region. Mohammed emphasized the party's unwavering commitment to upholding the integrity of the electoral process and ensuring that all technical defects are addressed promptly.

The statement addressed recent media reports alleging that the KDP had sought to delay the parliamentary elections to participate under conditions akin to previous elections. Mohammed categorically denied these claims, asserting that the KDP has not made any such request for postponement.

Furthermore, the spokesperson clarified that while postponing the elections remains an option under discussion within the KDP, it is not based on the desire to manipulate or alter the electoral framework. Instead, any consideration of postponement is rooted in the party's commitment to constitutional principles and the pursuit of transparent and fair elections.

The KDP's Political Bureau had previously emphasized its refusal to endorse any electoral process deemed unconstitutional or undemocratic. This reaffirmation underscores the party's dedication to upholding democratic values and ensuring that the forthcoming parliamentary elections adhere to constitutional standards.

As the Kurdistan Region prepares for this pivotal electoral event, the KDP's stance against illegal interference and its commitment to resolving technical defects signal a continued effort to safeguard the democratic process. The party's assertion that it stands in support of transparent and fair elections underscores its commitment to democratic principles and the rule of law.
