HDP to continue with DemirtaI and YuksekdaI as co-chairs

The Peoplesand’ Democratic Party (HDP) will hold its ordinary congress on Jan. 17, 2016, when delegates will vote for a single list of party administrators in which present Co-chairs Selahattin Demirtai and Figen Yanduksekdai will be the only candidates for chairpersons of the party, a daily reported on Tuesday.
According to a story in Milliyet, Demirtai and Yanduksekdai will continue to serve as co-chairs despite a loss of nearly 1 million votes in the Nov. 1 snap election.
Prior to the ordinary congress on Jan. 17, 2016, the HDP will organize local conferences of its heads of local branches and opinion leaders. Suggestions from the local branches will be presented to the HDP administration at a wide-scale conference in Ankara on Dec. 26-27.
According to Milliyet, during the conferences the HDP will discuss the future of the Kurdish settlement process, which was launched by the Justice and Development Party (AK Party) government, headed by the then-Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and Abdullah andOcalan, jailed leader of Kurdistan Workersand’ Party (PKK).
The HDP administration will also discuss political developments in the Middle East, especially Iraq and Syria, where a large population of Kurds live. The decisions will be presented to the HDP congress in January.
Milliyet also reported that after objections from a large number of its members, the HDP administration loosened its bylaw which only permits its co-chairs to serve for two terms. Having served two terms already, Demirtai and Yanduksekdai were not expected to be candidates at the third ordinary congress of the party.
