Massoud Barzani may step down, a potential blow to his ruling family

Longtime Iraqi Kurdish leader Massoud Barzani has been president of the northern autonomous region since 2005 and has seen his family-dominated Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) only grow in influence since. Last month, he led a controversial vote that, at least nominally, achieved the long-sought independence for Iraqi Kurds. This week, however, he’s offered to freeze the historic referendum’s results and reports indicate he may announce he’s stepping down at any moment.
