Greetings, Here is some of the Best News I have read lately and just maybe we can still WIN this game in the last half of the seemingly last quarter!!! The Iraqi parliament has elected Kurdish politician Fouad Massoum [Fuad Massum] as president, succeeding Jalal Talabani. The 76-year-old is a founding member of Mr Talabani’s Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) party. Associated Press reports that Massoum is considered a soft-spoken moderate, known for keeping good relations with Sunni and Shiite politicians. According to BBC News, the presidency is the second major government post to be filled, after Salim al-Jabouri was elected as parliament speaker last week. The next step will be for Massoum to select a candidate for prime minister to try to form a new government.
