Al-Ittihad abandons Latif in his last hours.. The president is at the mercy of consensus and the crowded negotiationsThe Information/Baghdad..
The Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, on Wednesday, expressed its hope that its candidate, Barham Salih, will pass during the parliament session to elect the president of the republic tomorrow, Thursday, denying the agreement with the Democratic Party to support candidate Abdul Latif Rashid as a compromise candidate.

The leader of the Union, Ghiath Al-Sorji, said in a statement to “Al-Maalouma”, that “Abdul Latif Rashid and Razakar are two men who entered the presidential race independently, and the Union has nothing to do with them, since the only candidate for the leadership council is Barham Ahmed Saleh.”
Al-Sorji added, “The Union will not retreat from the nomination of Barham Salih and will enter Parliament in order to compete with the Kurdistan Democratic Party, relying on the national space and the parliamentary conviction that the two parties to the competition are within the coalition of state administration, and no party can be pressured to vote on a particular candidate.”
He explained, “Negotiations are continuing with the Democrat on reaching a solution, but the two sides are still on their positions regarding their candidates, Barham Salih and Riber Ahmed so far, and we hope to end the crisis in the coming hours.”
The Presidency of the House of Representatives has set, tomorrow, Thursday, an official date for electing the President of the Republic, after a political blockage that has lasted for more than a year since the early parliamentary elections. Done/25 d
