The leader of the opposition Republican People’s Party of Turkey, Kemal Kılıçdarolu, said that Turkey needs to end the state of polarization and establish a strong parliamentary system before talking about changing the constitution.
Commenting on Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s launch of a campaign to amend the constitution, Kılıçdaro إنهlu said that it is first necessary to ensure that the first four articles of the constitution remain as they are, in reference to the principle of secularism of the state.
He stressed that it must start to end the state of polarization in the country, and said that there is a need, above all, to create the right political climate and political understanding that is compatible with the current constitution.
In order to approve the debate on changing the constitution, Kılıçdarolu stipulated the approval of a strengthened parliamentary system to restore judicial institutions and protect human rights in Turkey, saying, in reference to the subjection of the judiciary to the authority of the president: “Just as the court system swept away the remnants of law and democracy .. the mechanisms of balance and control were paralyzed. Absolutely. We need a strong parliamentary system. “
The Turkish president, with the approval of the National Movement Party, his partner in the ruling coalition, is seeking to conduct a new constitutional amendment, saying, “It is time in Turkey to draft a new constitution in the country.”
