Main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu has vowed to defend his party’s shares in lender İşbank.
“We will do whatever possible on the legal ground,” Kılıçdaroğlu said at his party’s parliamentary group meeting on Oct. 16.
“He [referring to President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan] says he will transfer Atatürk’s shares in the bank to the Treasury. They want to take control of the bank. They are making plans to siphon off the bank. This is the country’s largest private bank. What would foreign investors’ think about it?” Kılıçdaroğlu said.
