the University of Kurdistan Hewlêr (UKH) will host a major conference titled
“The Kurdistan Region of Iraq: Unity and Constitution” on Wednesday 19 May

top leading political elites from the major parties, in addition to key
international speakers. The one-day conference will host various speeches and
open panel discussions from keynote speakers and influential political and
religious figures from the Kurdistan Region and beyond.
The necessity of unity among the region’s political parties

different aspects of unity and a constitution for the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.
In light of the Iraqi Constitution, the federal regions are
allowed to have their own constitutions. Additionally, President Nechirvan
Barzani’s recent attempts to gather all parties around one table and his
ambitions for passing a constitution bill in the parliament during his term in
office is warmly received by the main governing and opposition parties.

transparent and frank talks on unity and
constitution in this conference.
