He said the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) would complete the work on a new constitution.
In a report released by Memo on Thursday (7/10/2021), Erdogan said, “If we can come up with a constitutional proposal from the other side, we can finish work on Turkey’s first civilian draft constitution by the end of the year.” Huh.” .
The president then criticized the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) for amending the first four articles of the constitution and pledging to secretly cooperate with the pro-PKK People’s Democratic Party (HDP). According to Turkish law, the first four articles cannot be changed.
In May, AKP ally, Devlet Bahceli, also drafted a new constitution for the country, considering changes to the judicial system.
Erdogan’s call for a new constitution came four years after a referendum in 2017 to amend the current constitution, which gave more executive powers to the presidency.
