Muharrem İnce, the main opposition CHP presidential candidate, has slammed President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan after the latter said the National Intelligence Organization (MİT) identified participants of İnce’s rally in the southeastern province of Diyarbakır as supporters of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP).
Earlier in the day, Erdoğan had said in an election rally in the Central Anatolian province of Eskişehir: “According to the information I received from the intelligence, almost all participants [of İnce’s] Diyarbakır rally were from the HDP.”
But Erdoğan did not give further details of the intelligence he had on the individuals who attended the meeting.
İnce held an election rally in Diyarbakır on June 11 where he pledged to solve the Kurdish question in parliament if elected as the head of the nation in the June 24 elections.
