Secularism in Turkey
Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, the leader of the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP), has vowed to begin a journey to make peace with all social and political rival camps and create an environment to heal what he called the pains the Turkish nation was suffering from and foster hopes for a common future.
İYİ (Good) Party Group Deputy Chair Lütfü Türkkan on Nov. 6 resigned from his post at the party after he was accused of swearing at a protester in eastern province of Bingöl.
Video footage posted on social media showed Türkkan swearing at a relative of a person killed by the terror group PKK protesting İYİ Party leader Meral Akşener.
The Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) must distance itself from the terrorist PKK, Meral Akşener, the leader of the opposition İYİ (Good) Party, has said.
"We have been stressing this for months: We put the HDP next to the PKK," Akşener said during her party's parliamentary group meeting yesterday, suggesting the HDP has close ties to the terror organization.
Marking the fourth anniversary of the İYİ (Good) Party, chairwoman Meral Akşener has vowed to come to power in the next elections and make Turkey a much more beautiful country.
"We are today at a crossroads because Turkey is waiting for a new call," Akşener told her electorates at a meeting for celebrating the fourth anniversary of her party in Istanbul.
