For his part, MP of the PUK, Ghazi Kaka'i, told Shafaq News agency that his party is close to the Framework and the Sadrist movement at the same time, noting that the latest political developments oblige all parties to make new line-ups.

"The PUK's doors are always open for all political parties, including the KDP, but this doesn't mean that we changed our Presidential candidate. We confirm and renew our support for our candidate (Barham Salih)", he added.
