Êzidî Freedom and Democracy Party (PADÊ) officially recognized
The Êzidî Freedom and Democracy Party (PADÊ) was recognized by Baghdad as an official political party.
During its 6th conference in 2016 June, the Êzidî Freedom and Democracy Movement (TEVDA) made a decision to become a political party by the name of Êzidî Freedom and Democracy Party (PADÊ, Partiya Azadi û Demokrasiya Êzidiyan).
Following the finalization of preparations to this end, PADÊ officials filed an official application to the Iraqi Parliament which has announced today their recognition of PADÊ as an official political party.
Accordingly, PADÊ will be able to participate in Iraqi elections to be held in the following term, and open offices in Iraq and South Kurdistan.
