Trilateral charter panel may give ‘good news’ before Eid
AA photoRepresentatives of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) and the opposition Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) have suggested they may give Turkey’s people “some good news” concerning the new constitution before Eid al-Adha, which will start Sept. 12.
After holding their fifth meeting at parliament on Aug. 20, AKP Secretary-General Abdulhamit Gül, CHP Deputy Chair Bülent Tezcan and MHP Afyonkarahisar deputy Mehmet Parsak made joint statements to reporters.
In the coming week, all three will present their reports to their party leaders, Gül said.
“Upon decisions to be made afterwards, we will gather again the next week. Before being too late, perhaps before Eid, we can voice this to Turkey as good news for Eid,” he said.
Tezcan said they had already completed the essential part which they were required to do as the representatives of the party leaders.
“Within this framework, we will out the final touch upon gathering again the next week. Our hope is also to emerge with ‘a beautiful piece of good Eid news’ before the feast,” he said.
