Iraqi Kurdistan Parliament Holds Emergency Session

The Kurdistan regional parliament has recently held an extraordinary emergency session of parliament in order to agree on measures to bring those responsible for the killings to justice, and to prevent violence in the future. The Speaker of Parliament, Dr. Kamal Kirkuki, announced the 17 points that had been agreed upon at an impromptu press conference called late Thursday afternoon. They included significant measures, such the drawing back of Kurdistan Democratic Party military personnel, who had been bused into Sulaymaniyah after its branch there was targeted by protesters. Dr Kirkuki also announced that all arrested protesters were to be released, and that future protests ought to be policed only by the police themselves, and not the military. Branches of the major opposition party, the Change List, were targeted in arson attacks throughout the region. Tempers continue to flare, and reports suggest that a major demonstration is planned in the regional capital of Erbil. The Kurdistan region's parliament says it has announced conciliatory measures aimed first at bringing those responsible to justice, and more importantly, preventing the repeat of such scenes in the future. But people say why it has taken the deaths of civilians, for these changes to be brought about in the first place.
