Al-Qamishli: Kurdish National Council boycotts Kurdish Decision-making Body

KURDWATCH, January 16, 2015—On January 4, 2015, the Kurdish Decision-making Body met in al‑Qamishli in the absence of representatives for the Kurdish National Council. Twelve representatives of the Movement for a Democratic Society (TEV‑DEM) were present, along with five additional representatives with close ties to the Democratic Union Party (PYD) and three former representatives of the Kurdish National Council who had been dismissed from the Council because of their ties to the PYD [further information]. The members of the Kurdish National Council had made their presence dependent on the absence of the three dismissed representatives. The PYD, however, has taken the view that the members of the Decision-making Body cannot simply be exchanged.
