OSCE report appears after 'yes' results in Europe

The OSCE report is just another smearing propaganda against the referendum result

The Turkish people voted for constitutional changes on Sunday, which will bring a presidential government system. The rate of participation in the referendum was one of the biggest figures ever, with 85 percent. However, an international body, which claims to be an impartial actor in observing the elections, has caused implausible chaos in Turkey.

The election observers of the Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) argued that the referendum campaign was far from equal and the "no" supporters did not find opportunities to express themselves.

I received the photos of a Danish parliamentarian who participated at the OSCE mission as a member of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe.

Nikolaj Villumsen, the abovementioned Danish deputy, not only violated the impartiality and objectiveness principles of such missions, but he also openly conducted propaganda in favor of the "no" vote. His close friendship with Salih Muslim, the head of the outlawed PKK's Syrian offshoot, the Democratic Union Party (PYD), and with other PKK members was seen in many photos.

It was not only Villumsen, but also many other OSCE mission members, who openly asked for support for the rejection of the constitutional reform.

Additionally, the "yes" supporters in Europe were not able to see the same sympathy by the European authorities. Facing harsh barriers, they were prevented from deciding freely.

For instance, Family and Social Policies Minister Fatma Betül Sayan Kaya was forcefully denied access to travel freely from Germany to the Netherlands. She was also prevented to walk 30 meters to get into the Turkish Consulate in Rotterdam. The Turkish people, who had gathered outside the consulate to protest the bad treatment and biased attitude of the Dutch government, were attacked by Dutch police dogs. Many Turkish ministers were prevented to express themselves in other European cities. All of these chains of events were part of the fascist attitude of the German parenthesis of Europe against Turkey.

So, will the OSCE also record this hypocrisy in its final report? While the "independent" European observers were freely making "no" propaganda in Turkey, Turkish politicians were being prevented from meeting with their supporters in Europe.

Simply put, the reason behind the OSCE's biased report against Turkey was the Turkish EU citizens' unwavering support for the proposed changes in the referendum.


Recently, many European officials have started threatening Turkey about the membership process to the EU. The main message is clear; Turkey will not be granted EU membership following the April 16 referendum. Has anybody in the EU talked about full membership to Turkey before April 16? Let us be honest, the answer is with our friends in Europe.
