KDP- PUK tensions continuing over interior ministry
Debate between Kurdistan Regions Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) and Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) over the ministry of interior in the next government of the region is the main hurdle on establishing the government six month after the parliament election in the region, official said.

A member of KDP in Iraqi Parliament Qasem Mashkhati confirmed tensions between the two former ruling parties over running the ministry in the next government, predicting that an agreement is possible between the tro lines.

PUK has demanded to run the ministry but the winner KDP leader Massoud Barzani stressed two days ago that his party will not leave the ministry to other parties.

Mashkhati further said negotiations over the other posts and ministries have been finalized and agreements have been made on them, noting that the issue of interior ministry is the only remaining problem on forming the region’s new government.

The government will be established as soon as a deal is made on the ministry.
