SULAIMANI — The Kurdistan Parliament will gather on March 1 for the first meeting of its 2021 Spring Session, Speaker Rewaz Fayaq announced on Saturday (February 27).

Lawmakers wrapped up the 2020 Autumn Session on January 30 after an acrimonious and divisive year, which saw long periods of inactivity due to partisan rancor and coronavirus-related restrictions.

During the ordinary session, lawmakers will discuss parliamentary by-laws and swear in Helkawt Anwar, who replaces Omed Khoshnaw as a KDP MP. Khoshnaw was sworn in as the new Erbil governor on February 18.
