What doesn't the goverment get about the word "democracy"? This is a plain and simple dictatorship, the grand sultan doesn't even listen to the opposition leaders speech, a shambles of a goverment, an embarrasement of a pm, and terrrible shame for the storm troopers of the goon squads in the Ankara police.
