MHP leader cites People’s Alliance as the defender of Turkey
The People’s Alliance, composed by the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) and the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), will be the main protector of Turkey’s future, the chairman of the MHP has said, in reference to a recent proposal by the AKP on the formation of the Alliance of Turkey.
“We will sure be united and protect our country and our people thanks to our solid togetherness. The Republic of Turkey will shape its own future and the People’s Alliance will be the defender of the independence and architecture of the future,” HHP leader Bahçeli said in a written statement on the Nationalists Day on May 3.
Bahçeli’s statement came amid a quarrel over the Alliance of Turkey, an idea suggested by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in the aftermath of local elections. Erdoğan clarified that his suggestion on the Alliance of Turkey was not an alternative to the People’s Alliance.
“It’s our historical responsibility to bring those who set up a trap for Turkey to account for and give necessary response to those who threaten Turkey,” Bahçeli said.
