No congress until final court decision, MHP deputy chair says

Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) Deputy Chairman Oktay Öztürk has said there will be no extraordinary congress unless the Supreme Court of Appeals finishes the legal proceedings.

On Friday, an Ankara Civil Court of Peace ruled that the MHP must convene an extraordinary congress after opposing members applied for one in the wake of the party's poor record in the recent general elections.

Öztürk said in a written statement that unless the Supreme Court finishes its judicial process, the implementation of the Civil Court of Peace's order "cannot be possible."

He said the court's ruling is not final and the party management will appeal the decision.

"The judicial process is not over yet," Öztürk said.
