Shafaq News / A reliable political source revealed that the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) nominated Barham Salih to become President for a second term.
According to the customs in place since toppling Saddam Hussein's regime in 2003, the President of the Republic must be a Kurd from the PUK.
However, the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) chose Hoshyar Zebari as a candidate.
The KDP won 31 seats in the October elections, while the PUK obtained only 17.
The Parliament Presidium has set February 8 as a deadline for receiving candidate applications for the position of President of the country.
