Iraq's Kurdish region postpones elections
The Kurdish region's elections commission announced it will postpone the elections originally slated for November 1, the news agency Kurdistan 24 said.
It said the regional parliament would pick a new date.
Kurdish regional president Masoud Barzani and his Kurdistan Democratic Party are in a delicate position after spearheading last month's independence referendum.
The vote angered Iraq's central government, which has since seized control over the city of Kirkuk and other disputed areas long coveted by the Kurds.
The elections commission also said there were not enough candidates to proceed with the polls.
