Al-Qamishli: Democratic Yekîtî divides once again

KurdWatch, March 31, 2016—On March 20 and 21, 2016, Kamiran HajʿAbdu’s Kurdish Democratic Union Party in Syria (Democratic Yekîtî) held a party convention in al‑Qamishli. ʿAbdu was re-elected in absentia as party secretary. Already on the first day a group of party members around Hajar ʿAli decided to organize an alternative party convention during which Hajar ʿAli was elected the new secretary of the Democratic Yekîtî. The divide can be traced back exclusively to the position of secretary. The Kurdish National Council has not yet decided which of the parties it will recognize as a member party. The Democratic Yekîtî had already split in January 2015 [further information]; therefore, there are now three parties with the same name.
