"This visit and his meeting with KRG president Negervan Barzani and purpose of these moves is to reach an agreement to pass a law of elections because it is one of the most important demands of the demonstrators, as it is related all Iraqi components and they need to have a say in the election law,” MP of Kurdistan Alliance Salim Shushka, told Iraqi News Agency – INA.
