Al-Qamishli: A new party alliance formed

KurdWatch, February 23, 2016—At a conference in al–Qamishli on February 12 and 13, 2016, five Syrian Kurdish parties formed a new alliance. Sheikh Ali’s Kurdish Democratic Unity Party in Syria (Democratic Yekîtî), Nasruddin Ibrahim’s Kurdish Democratic Party in Syria (el‑Partî), the Syrian-Kurdish Democratic Reconciliation (Rêkeftin), Salih Gedo’s Kurdistan Left Party in Syria as well as Amjad ʿUthman’s Kurdish Reform Movement in Syria merged to form the Kurdish National Alliance. Because of their links to the Democratic Union Party (PYD), the first four parties had been excluded from the Kurdish National Council [further information]. In the case of Amjad ʿUthman’s party, there had been a split with Faisal Yusif’s Kurdish Reform Movement (formerly the Kurdish Progressive Party in Syria [Reform movement]), whose party is a member of the Kurdish National Council.
