Hope for democracy in Turkey

The candidate for the main opposition party, Ekrem Imamoglu, has won 54% of the vote in the re-run of the Istanbul mayoral elections. Reacting to the win, the co-chair of Green Left Party Eylem Tuncaelli said: “The people have given a clear verdict on the AKP-MHP alliance’s refusal to step down in Istanbul despite their loss in the local elections held in March this year. They must now renounce any attempt to govern against the democratic will of the people.

Charges against the Turkish Green party co-chairs must be dropped

Co-chairs of the Green party in Turkey, Yeşil Sol Parti, are among 11 people facing an 8-year jail term if convicted for their peace activism. The trial will be held at the Ankara Central Court on 19 July at 10am. An international delegation of Green Parliamentarians from Belgium, Sweden and Germany will attend the trial to express support and solidarity from the Green political family towards our Turkish friends. The Global Greens stand in solidarity with Yeşil Sol Parti and all people who fight for our shared values of nonviolence, social justice, democracy, respect for diversity, sustainability and ecology.
