Kader Sevinc - Smart Democracy & Smart Citizenship

Turkish press

The party leader visited Diyarbakır and Şanlıurfa, two prominent cities in Southeast Anatolia, over the weekend in an attempt to boost the CHP’s popularity in the region, where its support has diminished over the last decade. The head of the main opposition expressed optimism over the weekend about closer ties with the country’s Kurds and a “third way” to solve the problems they face. The CHP is paving the way for a third solution for the Kurdish people through democracy, peace and acceptance, Kılıçdaroğlu said, calling this route an alternative to the ruling Justice and Development Party, or AKP, and the pro-Kurdish Peace and Democracy Party, or BDP.

Opposition party leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu has ruled out an election alliance with Turkey’s main pro-Kurdish party ahead of his trip to Diyarbakır on Saturday.“Our view as the CHP is clear,” said Kılıçdaroğlu. “We want to come to power on our own. We are in no search for an alliance.” Addressing final criticisms over his visit to Diyarbakır on Saturday, “We will be together with our citizens. We will exchange bayram greetings. Are they citizens of another country? They are our people,” said Kılıçdaroğlu, adding that the party will go to every part of Turkey.
