Al-Qamishli: Four parties join Kurdish Patriotic Conference

KURDWATCH, March 4,  2012—On February 29, 2012, the Kurdish Patriotic Conference announced that additional parties had joined the alliance: ʿAbdurrahman Aluji’s Kurdish Democratic Party—Syria, the Kurdistan Union Party in Syria, the Syrian-Kurdish Democratic Reconciliation (Rêkeftin), and Faysal Yusuf’s Kurdish Democratic Progressive Party in Syria—Reform Movement, a splinter group of ʿAbdulhamid Hajji Darwish’s Progressive Party. The first two parties were previously in an alliance with the Kurdish Future Movement in Syria. With the addition of the four parties all Syrian-Kurdish parties, with the exception of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) and the Future Movement, are members of the Kurdish Patriotic Conference. According to information from the Kurdish Patriotic Conference, seventeen youth groups have also joined. In many cases, however, the groups involved are very small or are youth groups associated with the individual parties.
