Disputes continue between the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) and the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) on choosing a candidate for the Ministry of Justice of the federal government and the formation of the Kurdistan region, Ghayath al-Sorachi of the PUK said Sunday.

Sorachi said that his party has introduced a candidate to Prime Minister Adil Abd al-Mahdi.


Abd al-Mahdi has the right to pick a name from the candidates sent to him. However, the PUK looks forward to be granted its constitutional entitlement.

The prime minister sent a formal letter to the parliament through which he nominated certain figures for the ministries of justice and education, according to the agreement of the political blocs, Khadija Ali, the parliament rapporteur said.
