    Sources from the NTV television station, listing as their sources officials from the Kurdistand Patriotic Foundation, have reported that former PKK terror leader Osman Ocalan has applied for Iraqi citizenship. According to NTV, Ocalan wants to set up a Northern Iraqi-based political party after achieving Iraqi citizenship.

    On the "wanted" list
     
    Sources also report that one of the main reasons behind Ocalan's application for Iraqi citizenship is that he tops the US list of 150 "wanted" PKK members. It is thought that Ocalan could arrange better protection for himself with US citizenship.
    According to the new Iraqi Constitution, a person must live in Iraq for at least 7 years in order to gain citizenship. Ocalan has reportedly resided in the village of Koy-Sancak, outside the Northern Iraqi city of Suleymaniye, for the past years.
