A parliamentary majority in Baghdad voted in opposition to the Sept. 25 referendum planned by the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG).

The vote prompted Kurdish lawmakers to walk out of the session, which was attended by 204 of parliament’s 328 members.

The non-binding referendum will see residents in provinces controlled by the KRG vote on independence from Baghdad.

The Iraqi government is opposed to the poll, claiming it will affect the war against Daesh, cause instability and violate the Iraqi constitution. Turkey and the U.S. are also opposed to the vote.
