Kılıçdaroğlu aldo blasted President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s election campaign manifesto declared on May 5 at an Istanbul rally.
The CHP leader questioned why the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) “cannot stand upright if there is a threat to Turkey’s survival,” adding that the president “blames foreign powers for all the government’s failures.”
If the country has been brought to the issue of “survival” then blame can be laid at the door of the government that has been in office for over 15 years, Kılıçdaroğlu said.
He also blasted the collapse of meritocracy in Turkey, saying the government has “abolished merit and loyalty to [the state] as criteria” in favor of “individualization” of the administration with “every decision made by the palace.”
The laws do not work and the functions of state institutions have been destroyed, the CHP head stated.
