Demirtas urges Turkey not to let ruling power to steal their future
Imprisoned Kurdish politician Selahattin Demirtas urged Turkey not to allow the ruling power to steal their future.
“Young people who do not enough money in their pockets for a cup of tea, , workers, retirees, shopkeepers, farmers who have to account for three cents, this is your election. Never let them to steal your future,” HDP’s former co-chair Demirtas said via social media on Thursday.
“We will not obey, we will win together,” he said.
Cebinde bir çay parası olmayan gençler, üç kuruşun hesabını yapmak zorunda bırakılan emekçiler, emekliler, esnaflar, çiftçiler!— Selahattin Demirtaş (@hdpdemirtas) January 19, 2023
Bu seçim sizin seçiminiz. Geleceğinizi çalmalarına kesinlikle izin vermeyin.
Boyun eğmeyeceğiz, hep birlikte kazanacağız.
Turkey is facing presidential and parliamentary elections this year amid economic woes that trouble Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s and his ruling Justice and Development Party’s (AKP) public support.
Demirtas, imprisoned since 2016 over alleged links with “terrorism”, has recently intensified his social media performance from his cell in Edirne prison to mobilize an electoral campaign ahead of the elections.
Erdogan on Wednesday said the elections scheduled for June 18 will be held on May 14.
