On Saturday, November 7, 2020, people of Deir Ezzor held a foundational conference in the cities of al-Bab and Turkey’s Sanliurfa to form a new political entity to represent the Deir Ezzor governorate.
Dozens of refugees and internally displaced people from Deir Ezzor attended the conference to witness the forming of a political entity that seeks conveying Deir Ezzor people’s sound in formal forums.
Deir Ezzor 24 interviewed Mr. Moaz al-Talab , a member of the Political Committee’ General Secretariat to talk about forming the committee.
Al-Talab stated: “ Revolutionary associations representing the Deir Ezzor governorate in Syria initiated the idea of forming the Political Committee. The associations are 20 including revolutionary ones representing areas in Deir Ezzor, and political revolutionary entities. The associations’ cooperated to form a political entity that includes all associations and represents Deir Ezzor. This idea caused the formation of a preparational committee.”
Al-Talab added: “After the revolutionary associations representing Deir Ezzor united and approved the idea of concerted efforts to install the basis of the Political Committee, the attendees suggested admitting independent political figures to participate in forming the committee. Given that, the attendees agreed to hold a constituent conference that representatives of the associations and independent political figures attend. During the conference, the attendees elect 45 people to represent the committee’s General Secretariat which in turn elects the 15 members of an executive office.
Al-Talab said:”The major aim of the committee formation is to try to find a political entity that represents all political, revolutionary, and civil powers of Deir Ezzor.”
Al-Talab said that forming a political committee of Deir Ezzor is a significant necessity amidst the existence of great powers combating in Deir Ezzor politically and militarily to control the governorate, and resulted political disputes, occasions, and negotiations that do not include people of Deir Ezzor.
Al-Talab concluded emphasizing that the newly-formed Political Committee is independent and not affiliated to any entity, body, or institution, and seeks becoming a political body representing political and revolutionary activities in Deir Ezzor.
