Pro-Kurdish party leader recommends HDP, CHP to discuss alliance
World Bulletin – 23-11-2013 – BDP Co-chairperson Demirtas stated that his party suggests HDP to be open to an alliance with CHP in the upcoming local elections.
Pro-Kurdish Peace and Democracy Party (BDP) Co-chairperson Selahattin Demirtas stated that his party suggests the People’s Democracy Party (HDP) — which is considered to be the sister party of the BDP — to be open to an alliance with main opposition People’s Republican Party (CHP) in the upcoming local elections. In order to bring its potential out in the local elections, the HDP should consider an alliance with the CHP, Demirtas said in Diyarbakır on Thursday. He added that there has not been any talk between the two parties on a possible alliance. At the congress, the HDP started its municipal election campaign strategy with the slogan, “The BDP in the east, and the HDP in the west.”
The HDP has brought together a number of leftist parties to develop a common strategy to get better results in the western provinces of Turkey in the upcoming local elections. http://www.worldbulletin.net/?aType=haber&ArticleID=123434
