Kirkuk, Kurdistan-Iraq, December 20, -- Head Kurdish official, Mr. Qader Abd Al-Aziz calls on Tuesday, to put pressure on Al-Maliki government to accelerate the implementation of the constitutional Article no. 140, describing the current mechanism to be vulnerable.

Mr. Aziz, "the representative of the presidency of Kurdistan province", stressed to follow up the implementation of Article 140, in a press conference held in Kirkuk.

He also added "that the Higher Committee for the implementation of Article 140 is working hard to apply, and the obstacles facing the implementation of the above -mentioned article were caused by Al-Maliki government."

He continued, "That the government had allocated $ 200 million for the work of the Supreme Committee for the implementation of Article 140 and so far only a small part of the amount appropriated has been disburses, saying that failure to pay the sum is a kind of procrastination in the process."

Aziz said that " we had a little hope that the article will be implemented because the implementation mechanism is weak and very slow, and the government of Al-Maliki is responsible for its weakness.

Aziz called on the government of Kurdistan province to put pressure on the government of Al-Maliki for the article implementation.

He added there was "a proposal submitted to the President of the territorial government to hold an extended conference in which all Iraqi political parties to discuss the activation of article 140 of the Constitution which is relevant to Kirkuk city."

The former Iraqi president forced about 250,000 Kurdish residents to give up their homes to Arabs in the 1970s, to "Arabize" the city and the region's oil industry.

Kirkuk city lies just south border of the Kurdistan autonomous region and it is not under the full control of Kurdistan Regional Government administration.

A referendum is to be held in late 2007 to decide whether the oil-rich Kurdish province should be annexed to the safe semiautonomous Kurdistan region in Iraq's north.
