CHP’s Leader Strongly Reacted Agains Nine Ruling Party Lawmakers

26765730The leader of the main opposition party has strongly reacted against nine ruling party lawmakers who voted against sending four former ministers to the Supreme Council over corruption claims, calling them “dishonorable and remorseless.”

The CHP head read the names of the ruling Justice and Development Party’s (AKP) nine commission members of the corruption inquiry panel who voted that four former ministers should not be tried before the Supreme Council.

Accusing the lawmakers of “selling their conscience, morals and faith” Kılıçdaroğlu described the nine commission members as “for political sale.”


Recalling that a final vote will take place at the General Assembly on whether or not the quartet of former ministers should be tried or not, Kılıçdaroğlu called on all AKP lawmakers to “listen to their conscience and vote accordingly.”

“The vote will take place at the General Assembly. I have never criticized the AKP parliamentary group. Parliament is the legislative body where the will of the people is manifested. That’s why I call on every consciously-inclined lawmaker: Please, I plead; vote in what you believe and what you respect after appealing to your conscience. The vote you cast will make Turkey either respected or disrespected,” he said.
