Talks between PUK, KDP on gov't formation complex: official


The Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) described the ongoing negotiations with the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) on the formation of the Kurdistan government as complex and difficult.


PUK official Ariz Abdullah said that political negotiations that took place between the two main Kurdish powers on the formation of the government in the region is very difficult and complex, noting that consensus on activating the law of presidency and the election of the president is difficult and would take a long time.

Abdullah said that the PUK made two offers on the formation of the government including forming the government by the PUK and the KDP only, or involving all parties in the region in the process. He added that the PUK is waiting for the KDP's response.
