SULAIMANIYA, IRAQ (Reuters) - Iraqi Kurdistan's leader Masoud Barzani will not extend his presidential term beyond Nov. 1, a Kurdish government official said on Saturday.
A plan to divide up the president's powers was outlined in a letter Barzani sent to the Kurdish parliament on Saturday, which it will discuss on Sunday, the official said.
