Iraq's Kurds are threatening to boycott general elections slated for January 2010 unless the allocation of seats in parliament is revised in what they describe as a "fair manner." According to the AP, the office of Kurdistan autonomous regional President Massoud Barzani said in a statement Tuesday the distribution of seats is unfair to Kurds.

 

Barzani's office added the people of Kurdistan "would be forced to boycott" the elections if changes were not made.
