Abstract

The Kurdistan Parliament – Iraq has been established in 1992 and has increasingly gained
legitimacy both inside and outside the region. The Parliament is a unicameral legislative body
in the Northern part of Iraq recognized as a federal region officially known as Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI). It has been functioning as a de jure institution in a de facto state, with a
rather stable legislative capacity. Formalized procedures and legally established functions of
this parliament are proving a functional institution, albeit with periods in which the main parliamentary parties do not reach the required consensus to legislate, for a long period. After
five election cycles, five parliamentary terms and hundreds of issued laws, are the region and
its representative institution willing to pass the test of a minimal democracy?
