Kurdish politician: Baghdad is more democratic than Irbil

A Kurdish politician said that “democratic values and freedom of expression are more evident in the Iraqi parliament than in Kurdistan’s parliament, which remains under heavy influence from the two main parties; the PUK and KDP”. Fa’aiq Kolby, leading member of the Democratic Solution Party added that the Kurdish region’s government needs “radical change and reforms”.
Mr. Kolby’s party was prohibited from competing it the upcoming parliamentary elections in Kurdistan over allegations of sympathizing with the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).
