Iraqi parliament votes to remove Kirkuk governor from office

Iraqi parliament rejects referendum in the Kurdistan region of Iraq.

:: Iraq’s parliament voted on Thursday to remove the governor of Kirkuk from office following a request from Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, according to several lawmakers who attended the vote.

The decision to remove the governor, Najmaddin Kareem, comes after Kirkuk – an oil-rich province claimed by both the central government in Baghdad and the autonomous Kurdish region in northern Iraq – decided to take part in a referendum set for Sept. 25 on Kurdish independence.
