ISTANBUL - Hürriyet Daily News
DHA photoThe Istanbul head of the Republican Peoples’ Party (CHP) Women’s Branch, Yüksel Çavuşoğlu, resigned from her post at the demand of the party’s headquarters because she praised the Family and Social Policies Minister Fatma Şahin.
Saying that the party did not want to work with her anymore, Çavuşoğlu decided to resign from her position after a meeting with party leaders that lasted about two hours.
“I admire and appreciate you. I wish you were the chairperson. Your perspective with regards to women is very good,” Çavuşoğlu said to Fatma Şahin. This statement caused a fuss in the party’s headquarters; and consequently, the party ordered her resignation yesterday.
Reportedly, CHP Women’s Branch Chair Hilal Dokuzcan told Çavuşoğlu to resign and Çavuşoğlu shared this order with her colleagues.
