“The Executives and MPs inside of AKP are uncomfortable”
Yalcinbayir claimed that the proposal creates division not unity among people. He said “I talked to many executives and MPs of AKP and many of them are very uncomfortable and don’t know what will happen, they are nervous. People who have worked at various senior positions in governments are also anxious. This was not the philosophy of AKP at the beginning. They can’t do the constitution change the way they do. It can be done in a democratic debate. Also it is not the time for it. It is not making Turkey unity bit it is making it polarize”.
