Aleppo - SMART

The Free Aleppo governorate council said that the direct local council elections in the village of Aynjarah, 15 kilometers west of Aleppo, Northern Syria, are complete, adding that the women candidates that were not elected received job offers from the local council women's office.

Abu Thaer al-Halabi, the head of the media office for the Free Aleppo governorate council, told SMART that the counting of the votes ended on Sunday, and 15 men were elected. The council will elect a president, a vice president, and four members of the executive office.

Abu Thaer said that the four women candidates who were unsuccessful will be hired by the Women and Children's Affairs Office, which is considered the bridge between Aynjarah's women residents and the local council.

The candidate Kinanah Razzouq came 16th with 483 votes, while Ammoun Razzouq came 19th with 159 votes, Ayah Mustafa came 21st with 110 votes, and Banan Rustum came 22nd with 83 votes.

For the first time since the start of the Syrian Revolution, elections were open for women to vote and run for positions, although it was limited to a voting commission assigned by the preparatory committee formed by the Rebels of Aleppo City Conference.

On Nov. 19, 2018, the Free Aleppo governorate council held a conference in the village of Kafr Naha in Western Aleppo regarding Aynjarah's direct elections by public voting, stating that 35 people ran for a position in the village's local council.
