A high-ranking official in Patriotic Union of Kurdistan left the party and joined the former ruling ally Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP).

“I resigned from the PUK led by Iraqi President Jalal Talabani and was very welcomed in the KDP led by Massoud Barzani and I will continue my activities as a member of the KDP,” Mahyadin Mazroui told al-Musalama daily.
