Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) deputy group chair Oktay Vural has accused President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan of conducting rallies for the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), saying the president needs to preserve his impartiality. 

“Erdoğan, who was elected as president on Aug. 10, [2014], has left being the president today by trampling on the oath he took upon his honor and dignity. He is being the bugle call of the ruling party,” Vural said May 5, during a press conference in Turkey’s Aegean province of İzmir as part of his election campaign for the upcoming June 7 elections. 

“Either be the president or the bugle call of the AKP,” he added. 

Stating it was unacceptable for the people representing the state to organize “operations against them [MHP]” by using the state’s resources, Vural said Erdoğan was being unjust to the citizens who voted for him during the presidential elections. 

Vural also called on the Supreme Election Board (YSK) to warn Erdoğan for breaching the constitution by asking for votes for the AKP and criticizing the election manifestos of opposition parties.
