    Masoud Barzani, president of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG), has decided not to extend his presidential term beyond November 1. His decision came just weeks after the failure of the independence referendum he championed.

    The move casts doubt over who will lead the KRG after he leaves office, and what it means for the future of Kurds in the country.
