Turkey’s opposition questions defeat and leadership after elections

16 Apr 2020  |  ahvalnews.com
The article discusses the aftermath of Turkey's presidential and parliamentary elections on June 24, where the opposition, led by the Republican People’s Party (CHP) and its candidate Muharrem İnce, faced a significant defeat against the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) and President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. Despite high hopes and a strong social media presence, the opposition was left in confusion as their endorsed election monitoring site, Adil Seçim, crashed, leaving state-run Anadolu Agency as the sole information source. Allegations of vote manipulation and irregularities surfaced, but ultimately İnce conceded defeat. The article highlights internal criticism within the CHP, particularly aimed at the party's leadership and the need for structural changes. Erdal Aksünger, a former CHP Vice President, provides insights into the election night issues and the broader challenges facing the party.

16 Apr 2020  |  ahvalnews.com
Doğu Perinçek, leader of the Patriotic Party, discusses Turkey's political landscape post-July 15, 2016 coup attempt, suggesting the government had prior knowledge but lacked the capability to prevent it. He criticizes the AKP's response and dismisses the idea of deliberate negligence. Perinçek claims the coup was a U.S.-backed trap involving Fethullah Gülen's group, FETÖ, but denies other groups' involvement. He warns of Turkey's deepening economic crisis potentially leading to unrest, but rejects the likelihood of an imminent coup, expressing confidence in the TSK's wisdom. Perinçek also comments on U.S. failures in foreign policy, the Zarrab case, and the situation in Iran, emphasizing Turkey's need for independence. He criticizes the imprisonment of journalists with alleged links to FETÖ and PKK, questioning if their arrests were for journalism or terror links. The article also touches on the Cumhuriyet trial and the reporting of state secrets, with Perinçek defending Aydınlık's coverage as journalistic duty.

German politician and Member of the European Parliament Rebecca Harms expresses serious doubts about the European Court of Human Rights' (ECHR) approach to Turkish cases, suggesting the court places too much trust in the Turkish judiciary. She discusses the state of democracy, human rights, and the rule of law in Turkey, drawing parallels with historical German issues. Harms criticizes the Turkish government's mass persecutions and arrests, and the lack of fair trials for political victims. She also addresses the EU's response to Turkey's antidemocratic practices, the suspension of EU negotiations, and the issue of visa liberalization for Turkish citizens. Harms concludes by highlighting the importance of supporting democrats and victims of oppression in Turkey.
