Students told to attend Erdoğan's rally, Turkey's main opposition says
Cem Ulucan / AYDINThe provincial education head in the Aegean province of Aydın reportedly instructed all schools to bring their students to a rally of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in the area, according to the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP).
Aydın Provincial Education Department head Pervin Töre sent a notice to all schools demanding teachers bring students to the rally at İstasyon Square in the province on May 27, Aydın deputy and CHP deputy leader Bülent Tezcan said in a press conference on May 27, showing a document purportedly alluding to the fact.
“People are forced to attend these rallies. The president has been violating the constitution for months by organizing rallies in favor of the ruling party despite taking an oath to be impartial to all parties,” said Tezcan.
The circular purportedly calling on the schools to force their students to attend Erdoğan’s rally bore Töre’s name but not her signature.
