[size=13]Political infighting result of Kurdistan presidency issue, senior PUK official says[/size]
Sulaimani: The head of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan’s (PUK) politburo, Mala Bakhtiar, said on Wednesday a lack of effort to tackle the Presidency issue has resulted in political infighting in Iraqi Kurdistan Region. During a seminar held in Sulaimani, the head of the PUK politburo said, “None of the Kurdish parties have said they do not want Masoud Barzani as president.” Bakhtiar said no presidential candidate has been nominated by the political parties in the Kurdistan Region for an election to take place, and called for a political consensus. Massoud Barzani, whose term as Kurdistan President ended on August 20, 2015 but refused to step down and remains unofficially in office. According to the law in Kurdistan, Barzani cannot run for presidency anymore. nrttv.com | Ekurd.net

Aiming to train Peshmerga forces, Sweden is expected to double its military personnel deployed in the Kurdistan Region, local media reported citing Swedish Defense Minister Peter Hultqvist on Wednesday. Sweden’s plan for a possible increase of troops’ deployment against the Islamic State (ISIS) is at the request of the anti-ISIS U.S.-led coalition, according to Sveriges radio. Stockholm authorities are expected to make the decision as soon as possible to increase the number of advisors from 35 to 70 on the ground in Iraqi Kurdistan. “In my view it is very reasonable that we extend our mission and also contribute more. Many other countries have done that and we should too,” said Swedish Defense Minister Peter Hultqvist. nrttv.com
