Chair of Turkey’s main opposition party, Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, held a meeting with the village headmen in Turkey’s Ordu province after his visits to factories in the city.
Drawing attention to the usage of state funds by AKP for referendum campaign, Kılıçdaroğlu also said the opposition is not given chance to voice their views on national TV channels.
With a call to the ruling party, Kılıçdaroğlu said: “Have us on TV and ask us questions. Matter of fact, choose the journalists to invite and have them ask the hardest questions… Let’s have a debate on TV…”
The controversial constitutional amendments package in Turkey was proposed by the ruling party while the country was still ruled under state of emergency. Parliamentary voting and debates over the proposed changes were handled within a matter of a few weeks and the country was dragged into the referendum process without a through explanation and study of the proposed changes.
