DSP's Sezer: "The economy must be our priority now"
Turkey has to focus on the economy instead of sowing new tensions and debate through a push to change the Constitution, said Democratic Leftist Part (DSP) leader Zeki Sezer yesterday. He was responding to opposition Nationalist Movement Party's (MHP) leader Devlet Bahceli called for a broad-based consensus on such changes to help defuse recent political tension. At a press conference at Parliament, Sezer claimed that Turkey has been moving rapidly and dangerously into an atmosphere of social explosion. Stating that opposition parties should join forces to protect social peace and welfare through an approach including all members of society, he added, "Now the priority issue has to be the economy."
