ERBIL-Hewler, Kurdistan region 'Iraq', — Seven Kurdish lawmakers withdrew from the parliament’s session on Wednesday protesting the attempt to approve the region’s constitution and to hold referendum on it along with the parliamentary elections.

“The parliament is not legal since (June 4) and can not approve the constitution,” Kwestan Abdullah Mohamed, one of the seven lawmakers, told Aswat al-Iraq news agency.

The Independent High Electoral Commission IHEC had set July 25 as the date for parliamentary elections in the Kurdistan region. The elections will coincide with the presidential polls.

A total of 507 candidates from several political blocs and alliances are competing for 111 seats in the upcoming parliamentary polls.

Parliamentary polls in the region were scheduled to be held on May 19, but were postponed due to the Parliament’s endorsement of the amended law on elections.
