A political source close to the KDP informed Voice of America (VOA) the KDP has asked the Shia parties to hold the court’s decision until Erbil and Baghdad reach an agreement.
The KDP has also requested that Iraqi President Barham Salih not to be nominated for president again.
Salih is the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan’s (PUK) nominee for the office of president.
Shwan Mohammed, an MP from the KDP bloc in parliament, told VOA and the KDP’s preconditions come from the will of the KRG and its legal institutes.
