"The head of the parliament of the region of Iraqi Kurdistan has officially resigned along with all the members of the Gorran bloc in the parliament," the source said.
According to the source, the Gorran and the Kurdistan Islamic Group parties has left the regional government.
"Having neglected the demands to conduct reforms and create a government of national salvation, as well as after yesterday's manifestations, the Gorran movement and the [Kurdistan] Islamic Group withdrew from government today," the source explained.
The situation in Iraqi Kurdistan has further escalated since Iraqi authorities had launched a military campaign in the region across the border from Syria, provoked by their independence bid. The loss of oil-rich territories hit a hard blow to the local powers, with Kurdish leader Massud Barzani's announcement of his resignation in late October.
Following the move, the legislative and presidential elections set to take place on November 1, were postponed.
