SULAIMANI — Erbil Governor Firsat Sofi said on Monday (May 25) that the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) and the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) have engaged in some illegal activity and will have to take responsibility for it in order to solve the Kurdistan Region's problems.

“Mistakes were made. People were employed and hired without them doing any work. There were people who were not martyrs or political prisoners and were designated as such. These all were done by the KDP and PUK,” Sofi told NRT’s 180 interview program.

“Those who are now the authority should bow to the responsibility and try to solve problems instead of avoiding them,” Sofi added.
