    Kirkuk Arabs Vote Yes to Kurdistan Referendum: Chieftain



    The best option for the Arabs in Kirkuk province and its surrounding areas is to vote yes for the referendum on independence of Kurdistan Region from Iraq, said the chieftain for the Arab al-Jobouri Tribe in Kirkuk.

    In a statement to BasNews on Thursday, Sheikh Masrour Naji stated "as Arabs of Kirkuk we were very pleased that finally a date was set for holding the referendum."

    Kurdistan political parties set September 25, 2017 as the date for holding the referendum.
    Naji said the Arabs in Kirkuk will vote yes to the survey for their own interest and for obtaining "more dignity" in the Kurdistan State.

    "As Arabs we are living on Kurdistan soil and the current Iraqi government, a Shi'ite government, does not recognize our legitimate rights [as Sunni Arabs]," the chieftain said, adding "Arabs are being protected by Kurdistan Peshmerga forces, so the best option is that Kurdistan becomes a state so that we enjoy more dignity in that state."

    The Arab Sheikh believed Arabs of Kirkuk will vote yes to the referendum "as we have no other option other the independency for Kurdistan which has now turned to a safe home for the entire components and thousands of Iraqi IDPs."
