The Kurdistan Islamic Union considered that the political ground in the region is not prepared at the present time for the drafting of a constitution on which all Kurdish parties and forces agree.
Dr. Muhammad Ahmed, the official of the Supreme Oversight Committee of the Kurdistan Islamic Union, said, "Only those who hold power are calling for the drafting of the region's constitution, at this stage."
He added in a statement to "Voice of America" that "We in the Kurdistan Islamic Union see that the ground is not adequately prepared for the drafting of a constitution."
He explained that "the reason for the failure of drafting a constitution for the region in the previous stages is due to its use as a material for electoral propaganda by the parties in power ."
Regarding the demands to make Islamic Sharia a reference for legislation in the constitution, the official of the Supreme Oversight Committee of the Kurdistan Islamic Union stressed that the majority of the people of Kurdistan are Muslim, and the constitution must express the will of the majority, and not contradict the provisions of Islamic legislation.
