Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) leader Devlet Bahçeli has said his party is against the government’s constitutional amendment package both in essence and in the method it came about.
Speaking at his party’s parliamentary group meeting on Tuesday, Bahçeli discussed the reasons for the MHP’s opposition to the proposed reform package, which contains 28 changes to the current Turkish Constitution, which was originally drafted during military rule following the Sept. 12, 1980 coup. The package, however, is seen as a major step toward Turkey’s democratization as the country finally challenges its civil-military relations, which fall short of complying with democratic standards.
