Cicek: "The AKP closure case shouldn't be dragged out"

Deputy Prime Minister Cemil Cicek yesterday said the government doesn't want to see the case seeking the closure of ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) dragged out. Speaking to reporters following yesterday's Cabinet meeting, Cicek said, "The uncertainty caused by the closure case against the AKP is harming Turkey in various ways. The price the country is paying for this case is inestimable. If the case goes on, that price will rise." Stating that the AKP doesn't want additional time to prepare its defense, he said, "We want to bring the uncertainty caused by the closure case to a quick conclusion and for this purpose, the AKP is paying great attention to the cost-effective use of time." Cicek also added, "This is the first time that a closure case has been filed against a party that came to power single-handedly. Turkey is going through many problems caused by this case. I hope the court rules on the case as soon as possible."
