Resigned CHP Member Tarhan Slams Kılıçdaroğlu For Dismissal Of Deputy
Anatolia Party (AnaParty) Chairwoman Emine Ülker Tarhan, who recently resigned from the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP), slammed CHP party administration for dismissing deputy Süheyl Batum.
Tarhan, in hard-hitting words, said that the move to dismiss the deputy highlighted the weak understanding of democracy underpinning the party.
Upon the CHP’s controversial decision to dismiss Batum for his remarks supportive of Tarhan’s resignation, Tarhan directed sharp comments at party Chairman Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu. Castigating the party administration for taking another anti-democratic step, she said she also found it odd to see the party occupied by a trivial pursuit while the Turkish agenda is so busy.
