Turkey: CHP to back any draft law to regulate economy

Turkey’s main opposition party will back any draft law to regulate the country’s economy and justice system, its leader said Tuesday.

“[President Recep Tayyip] Erdogan said, ‘We are starting a new period of reforms in the economy and judiciary.’ If they took the necessary lessons, well. If they bring a draft law to the parliament, we will back it,” Republican People’s Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu told his party’s parliamentary group.

Kilicdaroglu said the CHP defends justice for every Turkish citizen.

“The question is, how sincere is Erdogan with these remarks? How sincere is Erdogan to make any regulation in the justice system? He also sees that justice [in Turkey] hit the bottom,” he said.

Kilicdaroglu called on the government to free the central bank’s decisions.

Erdogan on Friday said Turkey began a new era of reforms for the economy and the judiciary.

The Turkish president said the priority is to immediately draw inflation rate to single-digits and his government is launching “a new campaign focusing on stability, growth and employment.”
