Of these, eight are parties or lists that represent Turkmen, Christian and Armenian communities in Kurdistan Region. Of the 111 seats, 11 are reserved for these communities. By law, women must hold at least 30% of seats.

The Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) has the largest share of seats in the current lineup of the Region's legislative body with 45. The Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) lies second with 21 seats.
