Autonomous Administration: There will be no polls in our areas
The Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria confirmed that the elections scheduled for July 19 do not mean anything to them and said: "There will be no ballot boxes in the areas of the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria."
Loqman Ahmi, Spokesperson for the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria, spoke at a press conference in the Department of Foreign Relations in Qamishlo on Saturday.
Loqman Ahmi explained that while the Syrians are looking for a peaceful solution to the Syrian crisis that has spanned over ten years, the Syrian regime insists on proceeding with its approach to see the Syrian crisis as if nothing had happened since 2011 till now.
Ahmi pointed out that the Syrian government's insistence on holding elections for the Assembly is nothing but an insistence to follow the path that it has followed since the beginning of the Syrian crisis, namely, its failure to see any crisis in Syria, and accept the participation of any Syrian parties in the process of dialogue to find a solution to the crisis.
Loqman Ahmi said: "The People's Assembly elections scheduled for July 19 do not mean anything to the Autonomous Administration. There will be no ballot boxes in the regions of the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria."
Ahmi noted that they aspire the Syrian government to invite the opposition and various Syrian forces in Syria to a meeting for dialogue to resolve the crisis through the Syrian-Syrian dialogue, in addition to setting constitutional principles for the Syrian constitution, and then going to the general legislative elections.
Ahmi confirmed that they in the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria do not join any individual decision, such as the holding of People's Assembly elections.
