Masoud Barzani steps down as KRG President

After weeks of chaos in northern Iraq that saw Baghdad retaliate to a Kurdish independence bid by re-occupying areas taken by the Kurds during the war against the Islamic State militant group (ISIS), there is one man who is paying for it the most: Kurdish leader Masoud Barzani.

A source in the Iraqi Kurdish leader’s office confirmed to Newsweek on Sunday that Barzani would not be extending his term as leader on November 1. “Yes he is,” the source said in a text message when asked if Barzani is handing over power. He will no longer act “as the president due to the end of his tenure and [he] won’t accept any other extension,” the source added.

The 71-year-old wrote a letter to the regional parliament on Sunday to inform lawmakers that he would end his presidency of the semi-autonomous region, which he has led since 2005.

Barzani's resignation would mean the KRG would be leaderless for a while until the very next elections which may or may not result in power grabs by various political parties!

Genocidal maniac Barzani moderate, lol. He has blood of 10000 Ezdi Kurds on his hands and some people call him moderate. He is a monster, nothing more nothing less

you forgot the 5,000 Peshmerga he lost when KDP and PUK were killing each other.
