Turkish Parliament falls membership of 3 deputies

Today, the Turkish Parliament witnessed protests against the decision to withdraw the right of parliamentary membership from 3 deputies, one of whom is affiliated with the Republican Party, and two in the Democratic Peoples’ Party (HDP) bloc, including Leyla Koven.

At the request of the authorities of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Turkish Parliament and the majority of its members affiliated with the Justice and Development Party (AKP) voted for a decision to withdraw the right of parliamentary membership from the representatives of the Democratic Peoples’ Party Leyla Koven and Musa Fares, and the Republican Party’s deputy, Anis Barab Oglu.

In the aftermath of the vote, the Parliament witnessed protests against the Justice and Development Bloc, and the Democratic Peoples’ deputies described what happened as a "coup d’état against legitimacy", chanting under the dome of Parliament “AKP is the enemy of democracy.”

Thus, the number of deputies of the Democratic Peoples’ Party decreases to 58 members, and the deputies of the Republican Party to 138 members.
