In an announcement shared at the last minute on Wednesday (July 26), Turkey’s President and the Chair of AKP, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, called for a meeting with AKP MPs and ministers in Ankara at HQs of his party.
While the meeting came as a surprise to the opposition, AKP members, who were also mostly unaware of it until the last minute, asserted that it is just a ‘wrap-up meeting’ before the Parliament goes on recess after the voting on the controversial bill on changes in bylaws of the parliament.
Speaking at the meeting, which started at 11:00 on Thursday (July 27), Erdoğan claimed ‘AKP is being targeted by both national and international forces’.
When referring to the slowed performance within AKP, Erdoğan said to party members: ‘Those who are tired should move aside’.
