Baykal: Solving the headscarf issue will take time

Speaking yesterday to his party's parliamentary group about recently passed constitutional changes on the headscarf issue, main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) leader Deniz Baykal warned, �The changes will cause a legal crisis." Stressing that President Abdullah Gul still has yet to approve the changes passed by Parliament, he added, �Solving this issue will take time. A government with three characteristics could solve the issue: First, it has no problem with secularism; second, it doesn't exploit the issue for political gain; and lastly, it doesn't compel people to adopt another lifestyle."
