ANKARA - In the extraordinary congress of DBP, Saliha Aydeniz and Keskin Bayındır were re-elected as co-chairs.

In addition to the DBP delegation, the executives of the Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP), the Peace Mothers Council, non-governmental organizations and many people attended the congress. Banners "Kurdish youth are the pioneers of the Middle East Renaissance" and "As you destroy, we women will rebuild" were hung in the hall where the congress was held.

Chairperson of the Council Bedriye Yorgun emphasized the importance of self-criticism about the shortcomings in the elections, drawing attention to the fact that the struggle does not consist of election processes.
ISOLATION IS ON AGENDA
Mentioning the absolute isolation of PKK Leader Abdullah Öcalan, Yorgun said: "The international institutions legitimize the absolute isolation and act in this direction. There is a system in Imrali that has not been seen anywhere else in the world. It should be noted that we need to increase the struggle to end the isolation of Mr. Öcalan."
