Erdogan: "The AKP will continue to pursue its course"

Speaking at a meeting of his party's women branch yesterday, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan reportedly said that the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) would continue to follow the course it had laid out. Referring to last week's Constitutional Court ruling overturning constitutional changes to lift the headscarf ban at universities, and claims that the ruling had strengthened chances the court would also decide in favor of closing down the AKP, Erdogan said, "Don't let anything discourage you. The AKP will determinedly continue to pursue its goals. No power can deter us from our course. Don't let yourself be demoralized by such developments."
