[cjswest] 10-26-12 LoriC: Multiple sources have now all confirmed that the Erbil agreement will be agreed upon during the Adha Eid holiday and then implemented prior to the National Meeting which is supposed to be next week sometime. This is what we have been waiting for so lets hope they live up to their promises this time. The National Alliance has finally put forward several initiatives to satisfy everyone and claim that there has been a breakthrough and that they will have it wrapped up in the next couple days.
Mountainman: The political blocs announced today that they have agreed to pass the HCL. After years of bickering we may finally see this issue resolved. Apparently, the the Committee of Five has done a good job reaching a consensus and they have an acceptable draft after a few amendments. The Kurds are praising their work and I think we should see this read into the gazette by next week sometime after the holiday is over and parliament returns to work.
