Several Kurdish MPs have declared their support of President Fouad Massoum’s decision to ask Haider al-Abadi to form a government, essentially ousting Maliki, Rudaw reports.

Kawa Muhammad, an MP from the Change Movement (Gorran) party in the Iraqi parliament said that Maliki is not a statesman, “He is not a mature or progressive man and he only works by reaction.”

Referring to Maliki refusing to accept the Iraqi President’s decision and vowing to keep his position, Muhammad said, “Maliki’s speech was the same as those dictators who cling on to power.

Renas Jano, MP from the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), also criticized Maliki, warning of the consequences if Maliki continues to be a decisive figure, “If Maliki brings his party disputes onto a national stage then he will be betraying all political parties, including his own friends.”

Adil Nuri, a Kurdish MP from the Islamic Union (Yekgirtu) stated that Maliki’s clinging to power could have the same consequence as it did for Gadhadfi, the former Libyan leader who was killed after refusing to relinquish power. “I hope his (Maliki’s) advisors give him wise advice in order to have a smooth transfer of power,” Nuri told Rudaw.

Arez Abdullah, MP from the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) said that “With this kind of behavior Maliki is trying to deepen Iraq’s crisis.”
