Basharan: Turkish government also attacks co-presidency system

The parliamentarian for the city of Elah in Bakûr Kurdistan and the spokeswoman of the Women’s Council, Aisha Ajar Basharan, compared the Kurdish National Council’s request by cancelling the co-presidency system to the Turkish government policy against the Kurds in Bakûr Kurdistan, and stressed that Kurdish unity is an urgent necessity at this stage.

During the national unity meetings in Rojava with the National Unity Parties, demands of the Kurdish National Council (ENKS) of abolishing the Kurdish in the educational system, reinstate the Syrian government's curricula, and the co-presidency system from the Democratic Autonomous -Administration sparked the anger of the democratic parties in other parts of Kurdistan, these parties linked the demands with Turkish state' aim in Bakûr Kurdistan.

The Kurdish women's movements and institutions believe that abolishing the co-presidency means excluding women's role in the administration, at a time it became a model for the world to follow, and some international parties have even adopted it in their administrative system thanks to the opinion and ideas that women add in the co-presidency system. .

In this context, the parliamentarian from the city of Elah and spokeswoman for the Women’s Council, Aisha Ajar Basharan linked the ENKS demand with what Turkish government practicing against the democratic parties in Bakûr Kurdistan and its strategy to thwart the co-presidency system.

Basharan says that struggle to fulfil Kurdish unity is very important, because we consider it a century of development and re-configuration of the system in the Middle East, so it is necessary for the Kurdish people to make a change in this system and to become decision-makers.

Aisha stressed that the Kurds should be one hand, owners of one decision to confront authoritarianism and build a new life, noting that work for Kurdish unity continues in Bakûr and Rojava despite the difficulties. She emphasized that these steps give hope for a promising future for the Kurdish people.

she believes that the ongoing work to reach national unity in NE Syria is important and strategic, and gives hope to other parts of Kurdistan, because the fate of all parts is linked to each other.

In this context: “The campaigns against Kurdistan started in recent years, from the attacks and occupation of (Rojava) NE Syria, the attack on the regions of Başur Kurdistan and the Makhmour camp, in addition to political genocide campaign against Kurdish politicians in Bakûr Kurdistan and destruction of cities and the tight isolation on the leader Abdullah Ocalan, all of these are examples and evidence that the Kurds face the same fate.

She noted that the ongoing national unity work in northern and eastern Syria faces problems and obstacles from some parties, so it is important to work to find solutions . She added, "The goal of the world powers to create disagreement among Kurds, so they work to deepen the contradictions and fraternal fighting between the Kurds themselves."

She explained that the co-presidency system in Rojava has become a successful experience in world , so that some left-wing and democratic parties have adopted this system in their administrative system. Aisha believes that this system does not mean sharing power between men and women, but rather it is a preliminary step towards democratization of states and peoples. She said, "The administrative system where there is no role for women cannot be democratic."

Aisha likened the system that the Kurdish National Council seeks to implement in NE Syria, with the same fascist mentality of the Turkish government that attacks all movements, organizations and institutions which take the freedom and existence of women as a basis, such as occupation of the HDP municipalities in regions and cities Bakûr Kurdistan.

The parliamentarian called on all Kurdish forces and parties to derogate from influence of governments, occupied countries, and to think about national unity because it is the only solution to build a new future for the Kurdish people.
