President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan criticized a brawl started by Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) deputies during a constitutional committee meeting on Monday night in Parliament, among deputies gathered to discuss a proposal to strip deputies of their immunity, saying the Turkish people should not see such brawls in Parliament.
"These people [brawling deputies] do not deserve to be the representatives of the people," Erdoğan told a crowd of local administrators at the Presidential Complex in Ankara on Wednesday.
The proposal to lift parliamentary immunity was approved late on Monday by a unanimous vote from deputies of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Party), as well as the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) and the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP).
