CHP held a meeting of provincial heads in Çanakkale on August 9th. Speaking at the meeting, CHP Chair Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu mainly emphasized the need for a culture of consensus and asked of the provincial heads of his party to pay visits to other parties’ local chairs. Repeating on his previous comments about the significance and essence of parliamentarian system, Kılıçdaroğlu also touched on the necessity of lifting the 10% elections threshold.

Parts of the speech of CHP Chair Kılıçdaroğlu were as the following:

“Embracing the founding principles of the Republic should be the goal of all parties.”

“Those who had told us the history of the Republic wrong were primarily Kenan Evren and his friends.”

“We must enhance the parliamentarian system.”

Support us for independent media in Turkey Support us for independent media in Turkey

“The Parliament which had run the Independence War is capable of solving any kind of problem.”

“When the Parliament had been bombed, my very first request from my MP friends were for them ‘to go to the Parliament building right away.’”

“The 10% elections threshold was brought up by the coup. So, national will actually is not fully represented in the Parliament.”

“I call on the government openly and clearly: the media must be the 4th power. Political parties must not interfere with the affairs of the newspapers."

“We will not forget that FETÖ type organization had been placed in all branches of the state. There was no infiltration; there were placements. Now, they (AKP) say that they will bring merit system to the state; we are going to monitor that.”
