Hassan Namiq, a leader in the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), said that the presidency of the Kurdistan region should be directly elected by the people.

He added that before the position became solidified, it was the people, not the parliament, who determined the candidate who came to power.

"We have no objection to the nomination of Nechirvan Barzani to the presidency of the Kurdistan region,” Namiq stated, adding, “but in the legal way of getting the confidence of the people in the region and not through parliament."
