Justice and Development Party
We all know how Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip ErdoÄan considered the Gezi wave of protests that shook Turkey for three weeks a year ago.
The ruling partyâs reluctance to nominate its members to the Parliamentâs Corruption Investigation Commission has triggered criticism from the opposition amid an official warning The parliamentary speakerâs office has sent its second warning to the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) to nominate its members to the Parliamentâs Corruption Investigation Commission.
This time a year ago, Turkey was experiencing its largest ever wave of civil protests, following the governmentâs strong reaction to protesters who did not want a shopping mall to be built over one of the last remaining green spots at the heart of Istanbul: Gezi Park in Taksim Square.
If you ask me, the best possible strategy would have been to start the search for a presidential candidate at least one year before, hold primary elections in the provinces for a competition among the candidates and determine the individual after this process. The opposition parties did not do that.
Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip ErdoÄan has been criticizing the opposition parties for some time over their inability to announce their candidates for the first round of the presidential elections on Aug. 10.
Indeed, they have not announced them.
