Bahceli: "The ruling AKP is responsible for Turkey's recent problems"

Parliament Speaker Koksal Toptan's proposal for a bicameral parliament would not solve Turkey's problems, said opposition Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) leader Devlet Bahceli yesterday. Speaking to his party's Executive Board, Bahceli said that the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) has caused Turkey's recent problems through taking a series of missteps. "The AKP should act properly, because otherwise the polarization will worsen, and Turkey will be dragged into chaos," he added. Touching on last week's Constitutional Court ruling upholding the headscarf ban at universities, Bahceli said that the court had overstepped its authority.
