Muharrem İnce, the presidential candidate from the main opposition CHP, has vowed to halt a recent government move to split up 13 major Turkish universities.
“They have divided the nation, broken hearts, and are now trying to divide universities. But we will unite the nation, hearts and universities,” İnce said on May 24 during a visit to Istanbul University’s Cerrahpasa Faculty of Medicine.
Students and academics across Turkey have been protesting a recently approved bill that includes controversial measures to split up the faculties of Istanbul University, Turkey’s oldest institution of higher education.
