CHP Election Manifesto 2011

The CHP was founded on 9 September 1923, about one and half month before the proclamation of the Republic of Turkey. The first President of modern Turkey’s oldest party was M. Kemal Atatürk.

Today CHP is a social-democratic party, member of the Socialist International and Party of European Socialists.

The scope of the CHP Representation in Brussels is not limited to the bilateral framework of Turkey’s EU accession process. Issues such as the information society, energy policies, social development, climate change, international trade and security are among the different focus areas. The EU-Turkey relations are about integration and need multiple, plural and horizontal channels of communication. The CHP supports and promotes Turkey’s EU membership process also by being more present and active in Brussels.

The CHP’s Representative to the EU is Ms Kader Sevinç who previously worked as a policy advisor at the European Parliament and in the private sector. She is also PES Presidency Member.
