    The attempted coup in Turkey has consolidated the country and made all major parties, including the opposition, unify in their goal to protect democracy, Zeynap Jane Kandur, Member of the Justice and Development Party’s (AKP) Istanbul Administration, told Sputnik.

    ULAANBAATAR (Sputnik), Anastasia Levchenko — AKP is holding the majority of seats in the Turkish parliament.

    "Turkey has come together. All three major party leaders have come out, even opposition, so all four main forces, have come out speaking against the coup. This is very important that all four political leaders have come out with the same statement," Kandur said stressting that "Turkey has become unified."

    According to Kandur, people have come out into the streets to express opposition to the coup.

    "Everyone has gone out to the streets, they are claiming the country back. Turkey has had so many coups in the past 50 years, it simply cannot happen anymore. Turkey is not a place for the coup any more," Kandur said.
