Muharrem İnce, the presidential nominee of Turkey’s main opposition CHP, has vowed a new constitution reinstalling a strong parliamentary system guaranteeing democracy and the rule of law if elected in the June 24 snap election.
İnce unveiled his election manifesto on May 19. “The first step to be taken for the rule of law will be the removal of state of emergency rule. Necessary reforms and regulations will be made for the relevant state institutions, particularly the Constitutional Court, to fulfill their duty of carrying out impartial and democratic inspection. Competent and impartial judges will be able to inspect elected officials,” reads İnce’s manifesto.
