With Republican People's Party (CHP) members' ongoing criticism of the Presidential Palace, CHP Chairman Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu has taken a turn on his stance and told members of the media on Wednesday while en route from Ankara to the southwestern province of Aydın that he would go to the Presidential Palace if there is a task outlined. Although Kılıçdaroğlu has criticized the Presidential Palace many times and has declined President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's invitation to the palace, he recently said: "We would go if a very extraordinary situation concerning Turkey comes up," a change in his stance in the run up to the Nov. 1 elections.
Following an election campaign event in Aydın, Kılıçdaroğlu said: "When a war breaks out, you cannot say, ‘I won't go to the palace.' " In efforts to increase the party's support for the elections, Kılıçdaroğlu said the party "will go there to heed the interests of the country."
In coalition talks between himself the Justice and Development Party (AK Party) chairman and prime minister, Ahmet Davutoğlu, after the June 7 elections, Kılıçdaroğlu avoided going to the Presidential Palace and underlined that even if he becomes prime minister in a possible AK Party-CHP government, he will not attend Cabinet meetings held at the Presidential Palace. Despite criticism of the palace, Erdoğan often asserts that it belongs to the whole nation and added that it is an artifact that Turkey will hand down to future generations.
