A new party will be established during the referendum process, according to Cumhuriyet daily. Tuna Bekleviç is getting ready to submit to create the ‘No Party’ this week, who previously counseled Mehmet Müezzinoglu and Egemen Bagış, two AKP ministers. ”No Party” will be closed after the referendum.
Tuna Beklevic, an ex-Parliament candidate in 2011 for Edirne province from the Justice and Development Party, or AKP, and a former adviser to ministers, is setting up a ‘No Party’ solely to compaign for ”No” vote. The ‘No Party’, which will be the 99th party in Turkey’s political history, will give its establishment petition to the Ministry of Interior this week. ”No Party” that will operate throughout the referendum campaigning period will close after the referendum, reported Cumhuriyet.
According to the reporter Veli Toprak of Sozcu newspaper, the party, which includes former deputies, provincial presidents and businessmen, will appear in public this week. The President of the Party, Beklevic, assessed the process as follows: “For the first time, such a move is taking place. There has been no political party which gave its closing day on the day it opens. We decided to set up the ‘No Party’ for the No campaign.”
“Our sole requirement is that we will not use any ideological words throughout the campaign,” Beklevic said, referring to making a call to all segments of the society and attract wide range of attention.
