The Central Executive Board (MYK) of the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) is expelling some 4,000 party members after it was discovered that they had not cast their votes for the party in last year's Nov. 1 general elections.
Last month, the CHP headquarters discovered that the party had not received any votes in some ballot boxes where these 4,000 members were supposed to cast their ballots. Later, in an intra-party investigation, the name of these members came to light.
CHP Deputy Chairman Tekin Bingöl, said they conducted an investigation to find out the identities of disloyal party members and has obtained concrete information. "We will have a face-to-face interview with these members to identify what their reasons might be. If they don't have reasonable causes, such as illness or mandatory travel, they will be expelled from the party according to a decision of the MYK," Bingöl said in October.
Following the intra-party investigation, the CHP's main decision-making body, the MYK, discussed this issue in its latest meeting over the weekend and decided to dismiss a total of 3,896 CHP members for failing to vote for their party in the elections.
According to stats the CHP has around 1.2 million registered party members while the ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Party) boasts over 10 million members.
