On 27 December in the town of Rmeilan (Rimelan), the Northern Syria Constituent Assembly voted to remove "Rojava," meaning "Western" (Kurdistan), from the name of the federal system; initially named the "Democratic Federal System of Northern Syria-Rojava" and now called the "Democratic Federal System of Northern Syria".

The aim is to make it clear that the democratic federal system is not just for Kurds but for all Syria's ethnicities.
