Pro-government Milat newspaper columnist Gungor Avcioglu called on prosecutors to ban main opposition Republican Peoples’ Party (CHP) over provocation charges.
Accusing CHP of supporting post-coup protests, Avcioglu said: “I think a legal case should be filed to close down CHP due to the remarks they make to provoke their supporters,” Avcioglu said in his column on Sunday.
A constitutional amendment that gives more power to President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan was approved by a slight majority on April 16, although debates over alleged voting irregularities have yet to ease. The opposition and international observers say as many as 2.5 million voters could have been “manipulated,” effectively changing the result. Hundreds of “No” voters have taken to the streets since then.
