As the ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Party) continues its preparations to change the country's parliamentary system to a presidential one with a constitutional proposal to Parliament, Turkey's main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) has said on Sunday it would take to the streets opposing the AK Party's proposal and a possible referendum.
The decision came after CHP discussed the issue at its party caucus last Friday and constitutional workshop throughout the weekend. CHP is preparing for the possible referendum after closely observing the meetings on constitutional reform held between the AK Party and the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP).
Party sources have indicated that the CHP evaluated the presidential system at its constitutional workshop last weekend and has started to work on a campaign against the possible referendum.
Planning to relay its view on the presidential system and constitutional reforms to the public once again, the CHP will take to the streets rather than Parliament to explain why they are against the changes. According to the sources, the Parliament's CHP members will personally be on the field when the constitutional reform package reaches the general assembly.
The party is determined that getting the backing of MHP supporters is more crucial because of the view that the CHP voter base is already against the proposed change. The CHP administration has instructed their provincial branches to focus on persuading MHP in its upcoming political campaign.
The CHP will organize rallies in the larger cities of Turkey, addressing the recent political developments in the country. The sources specified that preparations for the first rally have already commenced and it is expected to take place by the end of the month.
