(BAGHDAD) — Kurdish politician Fouad Massoum has been named the new president of Iraq following a parliamentary vote.
Massoum, 76, is one of the founders of current President Jalal Talabani’s Patriotic Union of Kurdistan party. He is considered a soft-spoken moderate, known for keeping good relations with Sunni and Shiite Arab politicians.
