Two weeks left before the elections in Turkey and Northern Kurdistan. KCK (Kurdistan Communities Union) Health Committee Member Hebun Mahir has talked to ANF about the importance of these elections.

Calling on people to go to the polls on 24 June, Dr. Hebun Mahir said: “Everyone should be able to see that the HDP is a party with a vision for freedom and able to respond to people’s demands. Above all I invite the people of Bingöl, Dersim, Erzurum, to vote for the HDP in order to defend their own beliefs and values”.

KCK Health Committee member said that the AKP era has indeed meant Turkey went down on democracy, law, media value, and actually reached the level of 3rd world countries as these indicators are concerned. This is the result, he said, of the AKP government’s policies and persecution lasting 16 years.

Hebun Mahir reminded that the 16 years AKP administration has actually smashed the 100 years old republic: “Wherever we look, – he said – we can’t find any democracy in the Turkish state, neither in relation to EU standard nor in the developed countries Erdogan mentioned”.

Because everything is carried out in a mob way by the AKP, said Mahir, who added: “On this basis, there is no democracy, law, or freedom in any area. We got to the point where people are being arrested now even if they ask for peace through the social media”.
