SULAIMANI — New Generation Movement President Shaswar Abdulwahid on Sunday (October 17) reaffirmed the Movement’s focus on meeting the needs of the people of the Kurdistan Region following a positive election result where New Generation more than doubled its seat total.

"New Generation is the power of the people, from the people. That is why the people are the priority for us, not ministries nor parliamentary seats,” Abdulwahid said in a post on Facebook.

Despite the ruling parties constantly talking about "the unity of Kurdistan,” the New Generation leader said that the current situation in the Region is challenging.

Recent months have seen price increases for basic goods like gasoline, cooking gas, and bread.

Should the situation continue where the ruling parties are careless about the needs of the people, Abdulwahid said that there would be protests across the Kurdistan Region.
