MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Since December, the Turkish parliament has been discussing the AKP-proposed amendments to the country's constitution that could increase the powers of president. The CHP, as well as the pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party oppose the draft bill.
"The constitutional amendments proposed by the ruling party are the basis for introduction of dictatorship in the country, they are not aimed at solution to the problems, which are vital for Turkey," Seker said.
The controversial bill needs the approval of at least 330 members of parliament before it can be put to the popular vote in a national referendum. The AKP and the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) supporting the amendment currently have 355 seats in the parliament.
