(Baghdad: Al Furat News) The House of Representatives is holding an evening session on Monday to elect a new president for the next four years, amid unprecedented differences between the Kurdish blocs, as the deputies will have to choose between seven Kurdish candidates out of 24 candidates of different nationalities.

There is a big disagreement over the name of the candidate who will be elected, where the Kurdish blocs did not agree for the first time in 15 years - one candidate, and the political blocs in Baghdad has not yet decided on the issue of voting on any of the seven candidates.

The Patriotic Union of Kurdistan nominated Barham Saleh for the Presidency of the Republic, and believes that the position of his share according to the established norms and rules in previous times, while pushing the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Fouad Hussein, a rival candidate, where he believes it is time to change this equation, causing a sharp difference between the two Kurdish parties Key players in the Kurdistan region.

The repercussions of the referendum on the secession of the region from Iraq, led by the party led by Massoud Barzani, a year ago, which led to serious consequences for the region, and the state of division known by the National Union since the death of late leader Jalal Talabani in 2017 and the weakness of opposition parties; factors led to fragmentation of the situation Kurdish and disagreement on one candidate.

The failure to resolve the Kurds and agree on a unified candidate, that Baghdad has become the final say in naming the President of the Republic, and also means more weakness and dispersal of the Kurdish voice between the two blocs of rival, seeking to win and form the largest parliamentary bloc.

The legal expert Tariq Harb ruled out the election of the President of the Republic in the first round.

"The second round of voting and the parliamentary election between the top two candidates, the two who received the highest votes, are contested between them and is considered a winner and the president of the republic who won the majority of the votes and the lowest votes is considered a loser."

He explained war, "In the second round does not require a majority and a specific majority does not require the majority of the constitutional majority, but the majority of the majority of the votes if we assume that the number of deputies present 165 deputies, ie, the number to achieve the quorum and we imposed that one hundred of the present members abstained from voting, To 33 votes enough to declare the president of the Republic of those who got this number because the other candidate can not get this number of votes, but gets less than that number.
