Main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu on May 4 said he would agree to run for president in the next elections if the Nation Alliance would ask him.
"We have a Nation Alliance. If the Alliance says, 'You will be [our presidential candidate],' then I will be," he said while speaking to Yeniçağ TV.
Main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu has said that his party will submit a law proposal in parliament in the coming days regarding the independence of the Central Bank.
The CHP will seek support from MHP Chair Devlet Bahçeli for this proposal, Kılıçdaroğlu said on April 29, speaking to Karar TV.
The Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) has already started to work for the new constitution in line with President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's call, MHP Chairman Devlet Bahçeli has said, describing it as a historic duty to crown the centennial of the Republic of Turkey while calling on the opposition parties to lend their support to this initiative.
Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, leader of the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP), may be a candidate in Turkey's 2023 presidential election, an opposition politician said on April 14.
"Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu may consider becoming a presidential candidate. There is no harm there," Meral Akşener, leader of the opposition Good (İYİ) Party, told reporters in the parliament.
İYİ (Good) Party has no plans to be a part of the People's Alliance of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) and the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), İYİ Party leader Meral Akşener said on April 14.
"I am telling your little partner and its friends; I have no intention of being among you," she said, addressing the İYİ Party group members at the parliament.
