Former Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) Hakkari Deputy Adil Zozani, who HDP Co-Chair Selahattin Demirtaş insinuated early in December was a pro-President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan party member, gave his support for a presidential system and slammed the HDP's policy following the June 7 elections.
Having come under fire in the wake of Demirtaş's remark that there are some pro-Erdoğan figures inside the party, Zozani, in an interview with a Turkish daily, expressed his sadness over the statement. He also levied criticism at his party for its reluctant policy after the June 7 elections. "It was a mistake that the HDP said, ‘We will definitely not form a coalition with the AK Party [Justice and Development Party].' Because the Kurdish masses want a resolution of this conflict and want mechanisms to take effect that will ease reconciliation," he said.
Commenting on not being a deputy candidate for the Nov. 1 elections, Zozani claimed that his backing for a presidential system cost him the candidacy. "I did not find it appropriate that some friends inside the HDP insistently defended the continuation of the status quo. I support the presidential system," he said.
When asked about whether the HDP would have contradicted itself if it had collaborated with the AK Party after pursuing an anti-AK Party policy in the campaigning period, Zozani said things that had been said in the campaign period couldn't be put in the same box with things to be done in the administration process. Zozani also said that the HDP should be criticized for its failure to offer political arguments for a resolution.
