Kader Sevinc - Smart Democracy & Smart Citizenship

Kader Sevinc, the CHP’s representative to the EU, told SETimes Brussels “has long been failing to act with strategic vision on Turkey, losing its power of influencing positively Turkey’s democratic reforms and social development.”

As a result, added Sevinc, the Turkish government “has become increasingly authoritarian, exercising pressure on the media, academia, civil society and the judiciary.”

Closer Turkey-EU engagement on democratic standards “would be good news for Turkey’s social democrats and progressive forces represented by the CHP,” Sevinc said.
