Republican People’s Party’s leader (CHP) Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu on Nov. 27 called on voters of the ruling party to teach a lesson to the Justice and Development Party (AKP), on the upcoming local elections.
“You gave everything (President Recep Tayyip) Erdoğan wanted. He wanted to be the president, you made him. He wanted to rule for more than one period, you allowed him,” said Kılıçdaroğlu, in his party’s group meeting.
The CHP leader recalled that Erdoğan asked voters change of constitution, change of the parliamentarian system to presidential system and he achieved all these goals over the votes of his supporter.
Kılıçdaroğlu recalled construction of presidential complex and its new summer house, and noted that Erdoğan received a plane from Qatari Emir as a gift, calling voters that they “need to teach him a lesson.”
Apart from the local elections, Kılıçdaroğlu talked about the economy and emphasized that they [CHP] will not give up on talking about “financial difficulties the public is facing”.
“You have to call the ruling party to account if they still have condemned you to tea and bagels. If you do not call anybody to account, then you are bound to stay impoverished.” said Kılıçdaroğlu.
