Icelandic vice president of Venice Commission Herdis Kjerulf Thorgeirsdottir and accompanying delegation will meet separately with AKP, CHP and HDP group presidents today. The parties will convey the shortcomings they find in terms of themselves. However, the delegation will mainly discuss the process of supervising each other between the judiciary-executive and the legislature, namely the separation of powers. It will determine if the independence of the judge can be provided by this system. Among the issues that the delegation will determine is whether the regulation of the referendum under the conditions of the emergency situation will constitute a violation of Turkey’s obligations.
During the visit of the delegation to Ankara, it is expected to also meet civil society organizations and professional organizations as well as representatives of high judicial bodies.
