CHP makes call to nationalist voters
Republican People’s Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu called on the nationalist citizens of Turkey for voting his party on the argument that the ruling party makes concessions to the values of nationalism.
“I call on my nationalist brothers. One of our six arrows is for nationalism,” he said speaking at a rally. “No real nationalist” can vote on the polls which have the emblem of the Justice and Development Party (AKP).
The CHP leader said the concept of nationalism and patriotism means “not groveling to someone,” but noted that the government acts against these values over its policies.
He criticized sale of Turkey’s public enterprises to foreigners.
The problems of the country can be resolved through democracy, he emphasized.
“We are living in a heaven-like country yet we have problems. We will overcome these issues via democratic ways,” said Kılıçdaroğlu.
The party leader also stressed that citizens’ will show their complaints about the governance in the ballot boxes, by using democracy.
Kılıçdaroğlu also put emphasis on the nature of CHP’s alliance with İYİ Party and underlined that the alliance is for the benefit of the lower strata in the society.
“Neither me nor [İYİ Party leader] Meral Akşener has a special interest in this. We are working day and night to provide peace to our citizens,” he added.
