Al-Malikiyah: One hundred sixty-nine members leave PDK-S

KURDWATCH, September 20, 2015—In a press release in mid‑September 2015, one hundred sixty-nine members of the Kurdistan Democratic Party Syria (PDK-S) from al-Malikiyah (Dêrik) announced their withdrawal from the party. The decision was justified on the basis of widespread fraud in the internal party elections on July 24, 2015 as well as agreements between unnamed groups within the party. Forty‑four party members in Raʾs al‑ʿAyn (Serê Kaniyê) had already left the PDK-S in early August 2015 [further information].
