“Six candidates had officially presented their nomination requests to the electoral commission headquarters in Arbil,” he said.

The candidates are current president Massoud Barzani, Halo Ibrahim Ahmed -- a brother of Iraqi President Jalal Talabani's wife, London-based academic Dr. Kamal Mirawdeli, businessman Hussein Karmiani, Ahmed Mohammed Rasul (Safin Sheikh Mohammed) and Ahmed Kurda, Aswat al Iraq website reported.

"Monday will be deadline for nominations to run for the presidency," said Ali Qadir, a regional electoral official.

“Sifeen Sheikh Mohammed has submitted his nomination for the position to the commission, which approved his nomination,” Ali Qadir told reporters.
