MESOP : HDP = OPENING THE DOORS FOR ERDOGAN’S FEUDAL PRESIDENCY – Kurdish Party Pushes Political Gamble to Run in Turkey Poll

28 January 2015 / VOA News – Turkey’s pro-Kurdish HDP has announced it will run as a political party instead of fielding candidates as independents in June’s general election. But if the party fails to secure the required 10 percent of the vote, it could open the door to the ruling AK party to achieve its goal of securing enough parliamentary seats to change the constitution and introduce a presidential system. Turkey’s election threshold of 10 percent, introduced after the military seized power in 1980, was to ensure politically stability after years of weak coalition governments.
