What have they to hide ???

The CHP and HDP asked for the debate on the new amendments to the constitution to be televised live, so the people of Turkey could hear what is being proposed and hear the debate for and against.

Would that not of been a transparent and democratic proposal.It was accepted but on the night, the plug was pulled and the debate was blacked out on the TV.

Also, the vote was meant to be open, free and fair. To be left to the individual lawmakers own conscious, a free choice was agreed, so they could vote directly or in a private booth to ensure their own free will .....

But the AKP whip stood with a camera video on the booth filming the voting of his party members and their allies in this venture MHP ...... Surely in any other Democratic country, this would be classed as voter intimidation ..........

It was obvious the AKP/MHP members unhappy with these amendments of increased power to Erdogan, or the lack of proper checks and balances on his power ..... were intimidated by the camera.

Knowing it could be worked out who had defied Erdogan (and the consequences ) by voting against the amendments by elimination of who used the private booth. It wasn't a real free vote, shown by AKP members who avoided the camera not using the booth and went down party lines even though there is known dissent in the ranks ,but not enough to openly defy Erdogan due to intimidation and fear..........

If this can happen to his own in the form of voter intimidation no wonder its easy to use on the public..............
