Farid Ghadry’s “term” expired as President of the Reform Party of Syria March 2009, so “he is completely out,” one person explained to me. The bank has foreclosed on his house in Washington DC, which has not sold, permitting him to remain as a renter.
The following email was circulated by the RPS: “For Immediate Release March 27, 2009”
Today expires the two-term presidency of Farid Ghadry of The Reform Party of Syria.
Mr. Ghadry has served the party over the last two terms. During his tenure, Mr. Ghadry helped energize the Syrian opposition and took bold decisions that broke from past Syrian oppositionist actions.
“I have had the privilege of serving RPS over the last two terms and will continue to support the organization in any capacity I can. My hope is that a new, progressive leadership of Syrians can take responsibility and dedicate itself to a democratic, secular and a free Syria.”
RPS executive committee will meet soon to vote for a new president. Mr. Ghadry will retain temporary stewardship until a new president is voted by RPS Executive Committee.
