Al-Qamishli: El‑Partî facing split

KURDWATCH, April 30, 2015—On April 19, 2015, the Kurdish Democratic Party in Syria (el‑Partî) held a party congress in al‑Qamishli that was organized by Party Secretary Nasruddin Ibrahim and two other members of the eleven-member central committee. It was the first party congress since 2006. Ibrahim, who has been the secretary of the party since 1998, was confirmed in his office. In recent months, there have been disagreements between Ibrahim and the majority of the central committee. Ibrahim was accused of being too close to the Democratic Union Party (PYD). As recently as April 9, 2015, eight members of the central committee declared in a press release that Ibrahim’s decisions in the Kurdish Decision-making Body [further information] were invalid.
