Megan Connelly – The KDP’s nominees for Kurdistan’s highest offices demonstrate the party’s belief that it can shape the region’s politics without regard for established power-sharing norms. December 07, 2018 – عربي

 On December 3, the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) announced its nominees for the offices of prime minister of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and president of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. Masrour Barzani, the son of outgoing president Masoud Barzani, will assume the role of prime minister, and Nechirvan Barzani, the outgoing prime minister, will succeed his uncle as president. While parliament is expected to confirm the new prime minister in the coming weeks, the announcement raises new concerns about the legal status of the KRG’s presidency, which has been suspended since October 2017. It also raises questions about how Masrour Barzani, who built his reputation as the strongman in charge of the KDP’s intelligence agency and the Kurdistan Region Security Council, will exercise his expansive new powers to form a new government and lead the Kurdistan Region.
