Al-Qamishli: PYD forms local administration

KURDWATCH, November 25, 2013—On November 12, 2013, the Democratic Union Party (PYD) organized a conference in al‑Qamishli to establish a local administration. The Kurdish National Council did not attend the event as the PYD had convened it without any consultation, even though the National Council was at the same time negotiating with the People’s Council of Western Kurdistan over the exact terms for establishing a joint local administration. Only representatives of the Syrian-Kurdish Democratic Party and the two factions of the Kurdish Left Party in Syria took part in the conference. Fathullah Husayni, member of the Central Committee of Muhammad Musa Muhammad’s Kurdish Left Party, told KurdWatch: »We are not against the decision of the Kurdish National Council, of which we are a member. But the Kurdish National Council distanced itself from the transitional administration very suddenly. We as a party will always take part in such an administration. It is a legitimate right of our people.« An eighty-two person founding council was elected at the conference.
