Local Democracy In Kurdistan

EDM number 1800 in 2017-19, proposed by Hywel Williams on 01/11/2018.

That this House expresses its grave concern that the Turkish Minister of the Interior has suspended from duty 103 village and 156 neighbourhood mukhtars, elected local community heads, without recourse to appropriate and required legal process; notes that those suspensions are justified on unproven grounds of association with terrorism; further notes that the measure follows the removal of 98 elected mayors in Kurdish areas and their replacement with appointed trustees, together amount to a further reduction of democratic rights; and notes the Kurdish population in Turkey ahead of the local elections scheduled for March 2019 that any representation of the Kurdish population in the administration of Turkey is being proscribed by the Turkish Government.

This motion has been signed by a total of 20 MPs.
