Baghdad, Member of the House of Representatives for the state of law coalition, Hisham al-Suhail stressed the importance of resolving the nomination of the candidate for the post of President of the Republic next week.
"The delay in resolving the candidate for the post of President of the Republic does not serve the political process and the concerned parties to finish naming him according to the constitutional timing," he told NINA.
Suhail added that" the lack of Kurdish consensus on the nomination of one candidate for the post will lead to resolve it in accordance with political consensus and this seems more likely during the constitutional period to nominate the candidate. "
The parliament speaker Mohamed Halbusi set the second of next month as a deadline for the election of the President of the Republic.
The two main Kurdish parties presented two candidates for the post, Barham Saleh of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan and Fuad Hussein of the Kurdistan Democratic Party.
