Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said his governing party is determined to present a new constitution to the public early in 2022, the Diken news website reported.
Erdoğan said in May that his Justice and Development Party (AKP) had reached the final stages of preparing the draft document. The government would seek the public’s approval in a nationwide referendum should an agreement within parliament on its articles fail, he said at the time.
The AKP will also shortly present to parliament a new package of legislation to reform the judiciary, Erdoğan said, according to Diken.
The government’s reform strategy is based on individual freedoms, a strong society and a more democratic Turkey, he said.
