The Constitution Conciliation Committee is expected to meet on Aug. 31 to define articles to be included in the upcoming "mini-constitution" legislative package. The committee which will gather to write the articles includes members from the ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Party) and the opposition People's Republican Party (CHP) and National Movement Party (MHP).

The committee is chaired by AK Party Secretary-General Abdülhamit Gül, CHP Deputy Chairman Bülent Tezcan and Mehmet Parsak from the MHP central executive board, and are currently discussing articles with the authorized boards from their own parties, as the committee will hold five meetings in total.

The first round of meetings started on Aug. 12 and Aug. 19, and revising the electoral system became an important topic of discussion.
