(Iraq Now News)- BAGHDAD, Iraq – Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has called on the Iraqi parliament to vote on removing Kirkuk Governor Najmaldin Karim from his position, according to a statement from the parliament speaker’s media office. No reason was immediately given for Abadi’s call for Karim’s dismissal. Karim has been a vocal supporter of the Kurdistan Region independence and holding the vote in the disputed province of Kirkuk.

He has said he is sure the result will be a ‘Yes’ for independence.Speaking in Kirkuk earlier this week at an event for the September 25 independence referendum, Kurdistan Region President Masoud Barzani derided attempts by Baghdad to remove Karim.“The Baghdad parliament is about to remove Dr.

Najmaldim, but we do not listen to them or care,” said Barzani.Last updated at 1:00pm
