Raʾs al-ʿAyn: More than forty members leave PDK‑S

KURDWATCH, August 28, 2015—In a joint press release on August 2, 2015, forty-four members of the Kurdistan Democratic Party – Syria (PDK‑S) from Raʾs al‑ʿAyn (Serê Kaniyê) announced their withdrawal from the party. As grounds for the decision unspecified organizational and personal differences were mentioned. The PDK‑S was formed in April 2014 when ʿAbdulhakim Bashar’s Kurdish Democratic Party in Syria (el‑Partî), Mustafa Jumʿa’s Kurdish Freedom Party in Syria (Azadî), Mustafa Oso’s Kurdish Freedom Party in Syria (Azadî), and the Kurdistani Union Party in Syria dissolved and together formed the PDK‑S [further information]. According to information obtained by KurdWatch, the people who left the party have now accused members of the former el‑Partî of agreeing to exclusively elect members of their former party to party offices in the internal party elections in May 2015.
