PUK, KDP fail to agree on gov't formation: MP


Patriotic Union of Kurdistan MP Dilan Ghafour, on Sunday, announced that her party did not reach an agreement with the Kurdistan Democratic Party concerning the formation of the government.

She said that the two parties also have not reached an agreement concerning the post of Kirkuk's governor, or the Ministry of Justice in the federal government.

Reaching an agreement concerning Kirkuk governor's post is more important to the PUK than forming the government, Ghafour said.

She added that the government formation and the distribution of executive positions with the KDP, cannot be discussed without resolving the issue of the governor's post.

A KDP member further said that his party and the PUK will meet by the end of this week to tackle several issues including the formation of Kurdistan Region’s cabinet.
