Erdogan: "The opposition can't stand the services my party provides"
Campaigning yesterday in Beypazari, Ankara and Denizli ahead of the March 29 local elections, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan charged that main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) leader Deniz Baykal and opposition Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) leader Devlet Bahceli are trying to drag Turkey down. "In democratic systems, the opposition should produce projects to benefit their countries," he added. Claiming that Turkey's opposition parties have nothing positive to contribute, he said they only want the ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Party) to lose the elections, and that they can't stand the services the party provides.
