Statement on Formation of the Iraqi government

We express our deep dissatisfaction with sidelining Yazidis and other minorities in the formation of the new Iraqi government. This step is counterproductive to our collective effort to create an inclusive society where all ethnic and religious groups are fairly represented.

Lack of any meaningful representation for Yazidis and other minorities comes at a time where nearly one million citizens from minorities continue to face impossible challenges in their pursuit to return to their homeland after nearly six-year of displacement.

Lack of representation in decision-making positions adds more complexity and challenge. Yazda wishes the new government all the success in meeting demands of Iraqi people, which were made clear by millions of demonstrators and their sacrifices, we call on the inclusion of minorities representatives in the remaining ministerial positions and other governmental offices.
