Aleppo - SMART

Kinanah Abdul Razaq Razzouq, a female candidate for the local council elections in the village of Aynjara, 15 kilometers west of Aleppo, Northern Syria, became a member of the council after an elected candidate withdrew from position.

Abu Thaer al-Halabi, the head of the media office for the Free Aleppo governorate council, told SMART on Monday that Kinanah Razzouq was elected for the executive office for the Aynjarah local council.

Al-Halabi said that Razzouq will likely be assigned the head of the local council's Women and Children's Affairs Office or Educational Office, as the tasks of each member have not been assigned yet.

The election committee reported that the elected candidate Mohammad Hamdo filed a request to withdraw from the election process on Nov. 25, 2018, to be replaced by the candidate next in line, Kinanah Razzouq.

The candidate Kinanah Razzouq came 16th (the local council has 15 members) 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.
