Turkey’s Islamist Felicity Party opposes constitutional changes due to absence of separation of powers

Mr. Temel Karamollaoğlu, the leader of Turkey’s Islamist and conservative Felicity (Saadet) Party, said that if the constitutional amendment proposal containing the ‘party presidency’ put for a referendum without any change, his party will vote ‘no’.
Felicity Party is Turkey’s latest Islamist and Conservative party which comes from the tradition of Necmettin Erbakan, who is considered to be the father of Turkish Islamist Political Movement. Today’s President Erdogan also was a member and Istanbul Mayor from Welfare Party before the Felicity when Erbakan was the party leader.
At the press conference held at the Party’s Headquarters, Karamollaoğlu stated that the principle of separation of powers was not taken into consideration in the amendmenst of the constitution, and that the concentration of powers on one’s hand would create problems in the representation of the “national will”.
