"QAMISHLO, Syrian Kurdistan (Kurdistan 24) – Officials in the Kurdish-led administration (PKK/YPG) in northern Syria on Thursday said they had begun preparing for the second local elections, a move toward consolidating a federal system in their regions.That is, of course, the party backed by UKUsrael
A member of the Election High Commission in Syria’s Kurdish-led administration told Kurdistan 24 there would be seven lists for the municipal vote for Federal administration in northern Syria.
The lists represent the political factions in the region. One is called the Democratic Nation—which includes 18 political parties.
The first round of elections was held in September for bodies running local communities, and in December for bodies running larger areas.
Moreover, elections for the entire region of Syrian Kurdistan (Rojava) will be held in January.
However, officials of Syria’s Kurdish National Council (ENKS), an opposition coalition against the current administration whose main party is the PYD, (PKK/YPG) view the election as illegal
They claim the vote to establish a federal system has only been accepted by one political party."
