Deputy Prime Minister Yalçın Akdoğan in a televised interview has commented about the current situation of the Republican People's Party (CHP) and claimed they are experiencing an ideological trauma following the party's 18th extraordinary congress when Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu was re-elected as the chairman.
Touching upon the current intra-party conflict and clash of different blocs within the party, Akdoğan stated that the congress has not been able to resolve the political crisis that CHP is currently experiencing. He claimed that in reality such congresses do not only result in a change of the leader but also the mindset, paradigms and a set of structural changes while this was not evident in CHP's recent congress. "I think CHP is experiencing an ideological trauma and has numerous structural issues" said Akdoğan, who noted the party is unable to take steps to question and permanently resolve these issues and conduct self-criticism to figure out what went wrong within the party.
CHP has experienced a serious intra-party crisis following the presidential elections when the party nominated Ekmeleddin İhsanoğlu as a joint presidential candidate to the disappointment of many secular CHP supporters who claimed the party is leaning towards the right, contrary to their stance.
Currently, Kılıçdaroğlu is criticized for nominating Mehmet Bekaroğlu who is a former member of the Islamic-rooted, right-wing Felicity Party (SP) for his Party Assembly (PM) list.
