MESOP : THE DEMIRTAS/ÖCALAN ROULETTE – HDP says has no Plan B other than entering parliament

Ruling out the possibility of failing to enter parliament as a party in the June 7 parliamentary elections, the Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP), considered by many as a kingmaker in the coming elections, has said it has no Plan B other than to clear Turkey’s 10 percent parliamentary threshold. “The HDP will clear the threshold. I believe that we will pass the threshold. We don’t have a Plan B. I promise you; if we cannot clear the threshold, on the night of June 7, after the elections, I will deliver my first statement to you, and I will explain what we will say and do,” HDP co-chair Selahattin Demirtas said in an interview with Haberturk television channel, when asked what his party would do if it fails to pass the 10 percent threshold needed to enter parliament.
