The Kurdish Freedom Party in Syria (Azadî) divided

KURDWATCH, November 7, 2011—In a declaration on October 30, 2011, the Kurdish Freedom Party in Syria (Azadî) stated that the second party congress since the party’s formation had taken place in Aleppo. Mustafa Jumʿah was chosen as the new secretary and Bashar Amin was chosen to be the new assistant secretary. Moreover, the selection of a new politburo was announced.
The Kurdish Freedom Party in Syria (Azadî) originated on May 21, 2005 as a coalition between the Kurdish People’s Union Party in Syria under Mustafa Jumʿah and Khayruddin Murad’s Kurdish Left Party in Syria. Murad was appointed secretary of the new party. He and the former members of the Left Party were not invited to the conference in Aleppo. Thus their position is that the Azadî remains under the leadership of Khayruddin Murad, and that the Azadî under Mustafa Jumʿah’s leadership is merely a splinter group of former members of the Kurdish People’s Union.
Thus there are currently two parties called the Kurdish Freedom Party in Syria (Azadî).
