Minority Representation in the KRI

OPEN THINK TANK AND KAS HOLD CONFERENCE IN ERBIL ON POLITICAL REPRESENTATION

Also available in Deutsch

The Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI) is home not only to Kurds but also to various ethnic and religious minorities. To date, eleven seats are reserved to Assyrian-Chaldeans, Turkmens and Armenians out of the 111 seats constituting the Kurdistan Parliament. Other minorities are not included in this quota system. With the upcoming regional elections in the KRI, Yazidis and other minorities pushed for a better representation in the parliament. To discuss this, Open Think Tank (OTT) and the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) Syria/Iraq Office held a conference in Erbil on August 16, 2018.
