Nail in the Coffin

President Gul announces he will leave the Presidency on the 28th Aug and wont go for a second term.

Before he goes, it is said that he will approve the New Judicial Package that will put the now Independent Judiciary under the instruction of the government.

Dealing a lethal blow to the separation of powers between the three pillars of Democracy. Executive , Legislative and an Independent Judiciary.

Its effect would mean that laws like the internet laws, that had been signed into law by parliament and by the president, but which were able to be challenged by the independent judiciary and overruled, would now be more difficult if not impossible to change .

Mr Gul has been accused of not acting like a President, looking after the interests of all Turks, but instead in Party political interests of his founding party.

Some are saying it is against the Constitution, and as one of the last acts of his Presidency, deceitful . What a legacy Mr Gul.

An interesting read
Gül approves law subordinating judiciary to gov't, draws criticism

Re: Nail in the Coffin

I read the article below the day before the announcement so the signing came as no surprise.

President Gül praises Constitutional Court for ?implementing universal law? - POLITICS

Re: Nail in the Coffin

with the Judiciary fully under the control of the Government Turkeys at best fledgling democracy is dead in its tracks
im not at all surprised at Gül..hes just RTES hand puppet since it was RTE who installed him

heres an interesting article written in 2008 when the trial to close the AKP was held
their defence was declared hypocrtical at that time ..but what a shame they were not closed down then
AKP?s Defense against Closure is Hypocritical - Erhan Üstünda? - english

Re: Nail in the Coffin

You will hear less of brave judges and prosecutors like Hasim Kilic and Metin Fezioglu, who were able to speak out and overturn bad laws that restricted Turks freedoms, and which is inherent in the Constitution as it now stands, as they will now be muzzled and controlled by the government .:

I think this new bill will surely scupper any chances of Turkey joining the EU as it is anti democratic, not having a free and independent Judiciary. Erdogan has never wanted the EU anyway, too much Democracy and human rights for his AGENDA.

Re: Nail in the Coffin

ive always said that Bal..the rule of the EU is the opposite of his true ideology

have you read his attack and interference now on independent universities such as Bilkent

i have seen Mustafa Akyol change his views completely at one time he was very pro RTE and AKP

Erdo?an?s attack on private universities - MUSTAFA AKYOL

Re: Nail in the Coffin

His micro management of ALL parts of society is frightening .I thought the coups by the military were bad but this is insidious and people will not see the damage until it is a done deed and to late to reverse .
