According to a statement with the signature of the PUK’s Deputy Secretary General, Kosrat Rasul, a decision has been issued to remove the head of the PUK faction, Ala Talabani.
“All faction members will be summoned to the [PUK] politburo in an effort to appoint a new head for the faction,” the statement read.
The sacking, yet to be implemented, came after Talabani’s recent criticism of a PUK ally, the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) led by Massoud Barzani.
