Turkish regime warns of holding Municipal Elections in Democratic Autonomous Administration of the Region of North and East Syria

ANKARA — The Turkish regime has been rejecting any democratic project in Syria.

Since the announcement of the Democratic Autonomous Administration of the Region of North and East Syria (DAARNES) to hold the Municipal Elections on 11 June, Turkish officials continue objection.

The head of the Turkish regime Recep Tayyip Erdoğan stated that Turkey won’t hesitate to act against northern Syria if they proceed with plans to hold local elections in the region.

“We did what was needed in the past in the face of a fait accompli. We will not hesitate to act again if we encounter the same situation,” Erdoğan added.

The Turkish Defense Ministry declared that Turkey will not allow threatening its national security and violating the territorial integrity of Syria.

Commenting on the ongoing preparations for DAARNES Municipal Elections, the Public Relations and Media Adviser at the Turkish Ministry of Defense Zaki Akturk stated that the DAARNES seeks to legitimize itself with the support of other parties, referring to the U.S.

Akturk added that the electoral procedures are unacceptable for the Turkish regime in terms of the territorial integrity of Syria, claiming that they may have negative effects on the protection of peace and tranquility in the area.

The Co-Chair of the DAARNES Election Commission Ruken Mulla Ibrahim had revealed earlier that 6 million voters will vote within 121 municipalities distributed over the 7 cantons of the DAARNES.
