Kurdistan Socialist Democratic Party granted Ministry of Martyrs

Prime Minister-designate of the Kurdistan government Masour Barzani announced granting Kurdistan Socialist Democratic Party the Ministry of Martyrs and Anfal Affairs.

"We visited the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) and the Political Bureau of the Kurdistan Socialist Democratic Party to discuss the formation of the ninth cabinet, and in order for the latter party to introduce a candidate for the post of minister," Barzani told a joint news conference.

Barzani also denied reports claiming that the PUK asked choosing a governor of Kirkuk as a condition before the formation of the new government.

"We will seek to present the government before the legislative holiday. In case any problem or obstruction [occured,] we will talk to the parliament to extend the work of the current legislative term," he stated.
