ARBIL/ Aswat al-Iraq: Polit-bureau Member of the Kurdish National Union Party expected the formation of a mini-operations cell to administer the party affairs, if the health conditions of its chairman Jalal Talabani does not permit.
The un-named member told Aswat al-Iraq that "though this matter is pre-mature, but the vice-chairmen (Kosrat Rasoul and Barham Saleh) may form the cell to administer the party at this stage".
He expected that chairman of Change Movement Noushirwan Mustapha, ex-deputy of Jalal Talabani, will play a great role within the National Union.
Earlier, Mustapha sent a "cordial letter" to the National Union Party leadership excluding his desire to return to his political role within the party.
According to Para.3 of Article 72 of the constitution, Iraqi vice-president will replace him for any reason, provided that the Iraqi parliament should elect another one within 30 days.
President Jalal Hussam al-Deen al-Talabani is one of the main Kurdish personalities in modern Iraqi history.
He was a graduate of Iraqi Law College in Baghdad University, who practiced political work in the Kurdish Democratic Party, headed by late Mustapha Barzani till he reached to a leading member.
In 1975, he formed, with others, a new separate Kurdish party, called the Kurdish Union Party, under his chairmanship, which is regarded one of the main two leading parties in Kurdish region.
