Main opposition CHP calls HDP detentions a ‘coup’


Turkey’s main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) has swiftly expressed its reaction to the detentions of opposition Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) members, including its two co-chairs, on terror charges, with two CHP deputies highlighting that the detentions constituted a “coup” in Turkey.
CHP deputies Sezgin Tanrıkulu and Ali Şeker were the first deputies from the party to deliver the party’s negative reaction to the detention of their co-parliamentarians.

Şeker described the detentions as a new blow to Turkey, while Tanrıkulu said it was “not only a coup, but also a mission to divide the country. The Grand Parliament has been bombed once again.”
