PUK removes Ala Talabani from head of party faction
The Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) decided on Monday to dismiss the head of the party’s faction in the Iraqi Parliament, asking the faction members to select a successor, NRT reported.

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.
