Demirtaş: One man empery cannot run pluralist Turkey
ANKARA (DİHA) - Speaking in his party's regular convention, HDP General Co-chair Selahattin Demirtaş said, "AKP Government took the ruling with the intention of resolving all the issues of the countries, but could not solve none. You have seized the country for 14 years. Give up asking account anymore, come to give account".
Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) held its regular convention in Ankara today. HDP General Co-chairs Selahattin Demirtaş and Figen Yüksekdağ, lots of deputies, guests from European countries and Middle East and thousands of delegates took part in the convention. During the convention, delegates re-elected Demirtaş and Yüksekdağ as co-chairs.
'We will seek conciliation in the name of peace'
Speaking in the congress, HDP General Co-chair Selahattin Demirtaş has declared his party’s willingness to take part in a parliamentary panel to draft a new constitution, but underlined that some measures should first be taken to enable thee party to freely argue its opinions, particularly on autonomy. “We will seek conciliation in the name of peace in the Constitution Conciliation Commission,” Demirtaş said during the regular convention of his party held in Ankara.
'The road we walk on should not be mined'
“We will seek conciliation there based upon the mandate that you have given. A new constitution is possible in an environment of free debate. The road we walk on should not be mined. It should be clear. Without undertaking road cleaning, how will we be able to make a new constitution without knowing what we will face in each step?” Demirtaş asked, referring to the fact that legal action has been taken against a number of HDP executives, including himself, and the other co-chair, Figen Yüksekdağ, for their remarks in support of autonomy.
'You have seized the country for 14 years'
"AKP Government took the ruling with the intention of resolving all the issues of the countries, but could not solve none. You have seized the country for 14 years. Give up asking account anymore, come to give account".
Demirtaş drew attention on the ongoing debates for Presidency and underlined, "One man empery cannot run pluralist Turkey. Self-rule is the best choice for the country."
