It is an
independent public, social and elitist institution found due to the hard
conditions that the city witnessed in the aftermath of the last regime change
These conditions drove a group of
elites from Baghdede, the centre of the District of al-Hamdaniya, to join their
efforts and do the best they could to serve the inhabitants of their city and
the surrounding areas in various aspects in cooperation with the government
offices. They offered to work as a channel to convey the suffering of the
people and their problems to the local authorities concerned in a transparent
and objective way.
The council was founded in 10
April 2006 through support from Mr. Sarkis Aghajan. An elected managerial body
was formed under legal and official supervision. Using their long experience,
the member of the managerial board have been offering their services freely and
in a spirit of solidarity away from personal interest.
The basic task undertaken by the
council is to defend the rights of Baghdede in the official circles and
institutions. With an objective to preserve the ID of the area as land and
people, the council has a determination not accept any compromise on those
rights and in a manner that would guarantee the continuation of its historical
characteristic, and through maintaining a balance in establishing relations and
an equal distance from all the components of the Iraqi people.
