A lawyer runs for the governor position in Erbil

Shafaq News / A lawyer announced today, Friday, his candidacy for the governor of Erbil position, to succeed the late Governor Firsat Sofi, who succumbed to COVID-19 last year.

Lawyer Omid Palani said in a statement received by Shafaq News, "after the door was opened to run for the governor of Erbil, I submitted my CV and the required documents to exercise my right to run for the position and participate in this democratic process."

Palani indicated that he is a lawyer and a resident of Arbil, so he can run for the position, adding, "I consider myself suitable for the position of governor of Erbil."
