Green Left Party aims to get 20% vote in upcoming elections
The Green Left Party has set a target to gain 20% of the vote and defeat the ruling government, according to Ayse Erdem, a member of the party's central executive committee.
The Green Left Party is the sister party of the pro-Kurdish HDP (Peoples’ Democratic Party) under which HDP will compete because of the risk posed by a possible court ban on the party before the elections.
Speaking to the press, Erdem highlighted the party's mission to build a strong organizational structure and create a parliamentary system that will pave the way for a democratic republic. She also emphasized the importance of engaging with voters on a grassroots level, stating that the party would be conducting outreach activities in streets and neighborhoods.
Erdem went on to stress that the party aims to play a crucial role not only before but also after the election. The party plans to collaborate with the Nation Alliance to work towards a new democratic constitution that will bring an end to the current government.
However, she also underlined that the party has the power to change the government on its own, and thus, it can be a key player in the upcoming election.
When asked about the party's election slogan, Erdem revealed that it would be "We will defeat fascism." The slogan is set to be unveiled along with the party's election manifesto on March 30.
