Iraq’s top court sets hearing date for case against presidential candidate Hoshyar Zebari
ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – Iraq's Federal Supreme Court announced on Wednesday it had set Sunday as the date for a hearing on the case against the nomination of Hoshyar Zebari for the post of the country's head of state.
On Sunday, the judicial body suspended Zebari's presidential candidacy, a decision that came just one day before the scheduled parliamentary session during which lawmakers were to vote in a new president.
Zebari was favored to win the vote, but the largest legislative factions boycotted the session after his suspension as a candidate.
