Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has criticised a proposal to ban his ruling AK Party as being against the “national will”. He was speaking after Turkey’s chief prosecutor asked the country’s Constitutional Court to ban the party, accusing it of anti-secular activities. Turkey’s secularist constitution does not allow any religious influence on the operation of the state. The AK Party, which has Islamic roots, won last year’s general elections.
You must admit that it took him a bit to understand something the rest of the world knows, that Turkey is far from democracy; is just that it is Turkish style dictatorship with the generals controlling everything from the dark back rooms. Just look what happened when the puppet tried to break the strings; prosecutor Abdurrahman Yalcinkaya said he believed there was enough evidence to show the party had contravened Turkey’s secular constitution.
About time for Tayyip to see who are his real allies and perhaps for the Turkish people to see who’s telling them the truth!
