PUK not to take part in gov't unless given Kirkuk governor post: Politician

Saadi Pira, a member of the Political Bureau of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, condemned the Kurdistan Democratic Party's policies, warning that the PUK may abandon taking part in the new government.

In a press statement, Pira said that the PUK will not participate in the new government unless it guarantees the post of the Kirkuk governor, adding that the KDP "adopts a policy that cannot be dealt with."

"The Kurdistan Democratic Party should understand that the Patriotic Union [of Kurdistan] makes the majority in Kirkuk, so it (the PUK) will not dispense with [governing] this province," Pira stated.
