The ruling People's Alliance, made up of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) and the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) , has strongly criticized main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu who declared that he won't pay his electricity bills until the recent hikes are withdrawn.
Main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu said a recent debate on the candidacy of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan aimed at "creating victimization."
"This discussion can be held at the legal level, but these discussions only benefit Erdoğan on the political ground of Turkey today," he told broadcaster TV5 on Feb. 8.
The Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) has reiterated its loyalty to the People's Alliance with the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) as well as the executive-presidential system, its leader Devlet Bahçeli has said, underlining once again that the elections will take place as scheduled in June 2023.
Main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu has called for unity to overcome the "hard days" that Turkey has been facing recently.
"We are having hard days. We are going through difficult circumstances together. We will and we must overcome together; we must overcome," he said at the CHP's parliamentary group meeting on Feb. 1.
