Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu said in an opening speech of the 37th General Party Congress in Ankara that the conference is taking place at a time when the country is experiencing the largest economic and democratic crisis in its history, stemming from a crisis in the management of the country.
He pointed out that this crisis threatens the social peace and unity of the people, stressing that his party will work to save Turkey from this crisis.
He pointed out that his party made a qualitative leap towards achieving the goal of rescuing Turkey when it achieved sweeping results in the local elections held on March 31.
He explained that the country is witnessing five crises; the first being the crisis of democracy, where the powers of legislation and the judiciary, along with the media were subject to the tutelage of one man (referring to Erdogan), democracy turned into a term on paper, and the judiciary became implementing what the presidential palace requires.
Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu added that the second crisis is represented by the economy, as the country's independence on the economic front is under threat, noting that the Justice and Development Party governments have spent $ 2.4 trillion since he took office, but the country fell into the quagmire of external debts.
He pointed out that the third crisis is represented by foreign policy, as Turkey has turned into a country that fulfills all the requirements of the hegemonic powers.
He stressed that the structure of the Turkish Republic has been sabotaged by the failure of Erdogan's government foreign policy.
He explained that the fourth crisis is related to education, as the level of Turkish universities has declined, adding that there is a fifth crisis witnessed in Turkey and is related to demographics, as the social peace in the country has been ignited by supposing the question about the citizens' lifestyle, ethnic origins and beliefs.
