Al-Qamishli: Progressive Party leaves Kurdish National Council

KurdWatch, December 1, 2015—From November 20 to 24, 2015, the Kurdish Democratic Progressive Party in Syria held its fourteenth party congress in al‑Qamishli, where ʿAbdulhamid Hajji Darwish was once again elected secretary. Hajji Darwish, who co‑founded the party in 1957, has held this position since 1970. The congress also decided that the Progressive Party will leave the Kurdish National Council. The congress’s closing statement additionally announced an initiative to form a center for Kurdish political decisions, which would include parties and political powers from both within and outside of the Kurdish National Council. Furthermore, the central committee was tasked with developing new approaches to dealing with the Autonomous Democratic Administration, which was appointed by the Democratic Union Party (PYD).
