Hashimi suggests PUK candidate Barham Salih will win

Kurdish leader Barham Salih
Political analyst Wathiq al-Hashimi said that the "Sunni House" is willing to support the KDP's candidate Fuad Hussein for presidency, at the same time many Shiites are also supporting Hussein while others are backing Barham Salih.

Hashimi affirmed that the "Sunni House" agreed to vote for Hussein, suggesting, however, that Salih will likely win.

Salih was nominated by the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), one of the main Kurdish parties in Iraq.

Subsequently, Kurdistan's Democratic Party affirmed that the decision to nominate Salih for the presidency post is a "unilateral one," pointing out that another presidential candidate will be selected by the party for nomination.
