PUK nominates Rizgar Ali as Governor of Kirkuk and Khalid Shwani to the Ministry of Justice

Sulaymaniyah – A leader of the Patriotic Union confirmed that his party resolved the issue of nominating two personalities to the posts of the Governor of Kirkuk and the Minister of Justice.

“The Patriotic Union resolved the issue of nomination of one of the members of the Political Bureau to become the Governor of Kirkuk,” said Fred Assar, a member of the PUK Command, saying that the Union would nominate Rizkar Ali for this post.
