HDP’s statement on the coup attempt

In this challenging and critical days which Turkey goes through, whatever its reason might be, no one should put himself in the place of the people’s will.

The HDP is opposed to any kind of coup under any circumstances and as a principle.

Turkey immediately needs to embrace a pluralist and liberal democracy, domestic and external peace, universal democratic values and conventions. There is no way but claiming democratic politics.
