Idris

Haji Adil, deputy head of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) party in Kirkuk, said on Friday that all conditions set by the PUK for the

post of Kirkuk governor are applicable on Rizgar Ali.He

added that Rizgar Ali has served as the head of Kirkuk's council for ten years,

and widely accepted by the components of the province.Adil

said in a press statement that the PUK determined set of conditions stipulating

that the candidate for the post should be from Kirkuk, to be acceptable and to have

relations with all components of the province including Arabs, Turkmen and

Christians.Movements

of influential militias inside Kirkuk have been spotted, while faced with

Kurdish-Kurdish movements and dialogues with Baghdad in order to resolve the

issue of the post of Kirkuk governor.The

Turkmen component in the province announced Ali's adherence to the post, which the Kurds have considered to be a violation for their right to

get the post. However, observers believe that Iran's militias want the post to

control the entire province.Sources

expressed their concerns about a probable deal that may be signed, at the

expense of the province, adding that it may aggravate the situation, as all components of Kirkuk will not accept any agreements that ignore their

rights.
