(Iraq News)- The Governor of Kirkuk province Najmadin Karim stated on Wednesday that the Kurdistan Region’s referendum committee will decide whether the independence referendum will include Kirkuk province.

In a press conference on Wednesday, Karim said the referendum committee, which is expected to be formed from all Kurdistan parties to set up the mechanism of the independence referendum, will resolve the issue of Kirkuk’s inclusion in the due referendum on independence.

If the committee decides to include Kirkuk in the referendum, then the process will be held in Kirkuk as well, Karim said.

Regarding the reactions of the Iraqi factions towards hoisting the Kurdistan flag in Kirkuk, the governor said “if they regard the issue of Kurdistan flag in Kirkuk unconstitutional, they can appeal against the decision in the constitutional court.”
