Turkiye’s opposition pledges to strip president of powers

ANKARA, 31 January 2023, (TON): Turkiye’s opposition vowed on Monday to crimp the president’s powers and broadly expand democratic rights if they seize power in May 14 presidential and parliamentary polls.

The six parties that are united against President Recep Tayyip Erdogan also pledged to agree to a joint candidate for the crucial vote widely seen as Turkiye’s most consequential in generations.

The opposition’s long-awaited election program aims to roll back many of the powers Erdogan has amassed over his two-decade rule.
