The political parties have not been consulted to determine the date of the parliament elections in the Kurdistan region, said the head of Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) faction in Kurdistan Parliament.

Ziad Jabar, the head of the PUK faction told Kurdsat News on Monday, that the elections should be held on time and the electoral law should be amended and the differences should be solved.

The head of the PUK faction said, the other communities and minorities should have their own genuine representatives, adding that the representation of cities and towns is not balanced and must be resolved.
