The Ahmet DavutoÄlu governmentâs recent attempt to change the conscription system in Turkey may be the beginning of a change in the military's culture, but it is also the end of an era in terms of equality.
A government motion for the implementation of a paid military service exemption was approved by Parliament early on Dec. 10.
Defense Minister İsmet Yılmaz admitted during the General Assembly session on Dec. 9 that the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) had clearly expressed its disapproval of paid military service exemptions, but defended the bill as necessary.
Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet DavutoÄlu has warned the Turkish military not to âtalk through the mediaâ if they have concerns.
Speaking to the press at Istanbulâs AtatÃ¼rk Airport before his departure to Greece, DavutoÄlu said the General Staff was connected to the Prime Ministry and did not need the media to express its concerns.
