Kurdish separatism in Turkey
Tunceli Emek, a daily in the southeast province of Tunceli, has a feature that no other newspaper in Turkey has: All of its employees, from its owner to its reporters and from its editors to its page designers, are women.
President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an has toughened his position against the People?s Democratic Party (HDP) by implying that it has ties with the outlawed Kurdistan Workers? Party (PKK) and acts as a parliamentary extension of the PKK. Erdo?an?s statement came only two days after HDP officials called the PKK to disarm and cease armed conflict against Turkey.
Despite placing strict red lines for his party regarding that formation of a coalition government, Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) leader Devlet Bahçeli has left the door ajar ahead of upcoming talks, saying his party ?will not hesitate? to do its best not to let any political instability harm Turkey.
