HDP’s Buldan did not recognize the protocol signed between Özdağ and Kılıçdaroğlu

In the second round of the Presidential elections, the leader of the Victory Party, Ümit Özdağ, announced that he would support Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, the candidate of the Nation Alliance. A protocol was signed between the two names. The HDP-Green Left Party, which supported Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, the candidate of the Nation Alliance, in the first round of the Presidential election held on 14 May, was a matter of curiosity at this point.


Making a statement on behalf of the parties yesterday, HDP Co-Chair Pervin Buldan said, “The goal is to build a free, democratic and fair regime that is free from discrimination, where people can participate in the administration. Therefore, Erdoğan is never an option for us and the only option is to change him and the government he represents. ” said. This statement was interpreted as HDP’s support for Kılıçdaroğlu, even though it was not voluntarily.


HDP Co-Chair Pervin Buldan met with former Mardin Metropolitan Mayor Ahmet Türk and MPs elected from the Green Left Party, and members of the press at a hotel in Diyarbakır today. Making statements about the Presidential 2nd round of elections to be held on 28 May, Buldan drew attention to the previous statements of Zafer Party Chairman Ümit Özdağ, who signed a protocol with the Presidential candidate of the Nation Alliance and CHP Chairman Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, “I am Ümit. I would like to express that both Özdağ and Sinan Ogan have made such a move in order to disrupt many games between two alliances and by entering into two alliances. That’s why we don’t look at what Ümit Özdağ says. We’re not hanging out.” said.

Buldan continued his statements as follows: “The main thing for us is the promises made by Mr. Kılıçdaroğlu to the society. The statements made by Mr. Kılıçdaroğlu before. They may have signed a protocol with Ümit Özdağ in order to win in the second round. But the main thing for us is Mr. Kılıçdaroğlu’ These are the statements and promises made by the government to the society before. These are the statements about the trustee issue, both about the solution of the Kurdish problem with democratic methods, and about the steps to be taken towards democratization in terms of Turkey’s future. We take this as a basis and we look at it. That’s why Ümit Özdağ has been using racist and fascist rhetoric very widely in recent days. He once again reveals his hostility to the Kurdish people. He is trying to play some tricks on the Kurdish people. But we will never, ever come to these games. Our main issue is democratization. Our main issue is Turkey. It is the future of Turkey. It is the democratization of Turkey. Therefore, racist and fascist discourses do not have any binding side for us.


Don’t get too hung up on the choices. Will Kılıçdaroğlu or Erdogan come? Our struggle will be the same. It is the continuation of the struggle we have been waging for 40 years. Of course, the Kurdish people paid a great price. It is not possible for the Kurdish people to take sides with those who bring fascism to this country. The trustee issue is of course a mortgage on the will of the Kurdish people. We are aware of this. Whoever comes, we will reveal our attitude towards this mortgage. No lawsuit was filed against any of our friends in the local administrations, but after he became the mayor, lawsuits were filed and he became a suspect. Kurdish politicians are in prison, their immunity has been lifted. Of course, the opposition is not something that has come out of the milk, but we stay with Kılıçdaroğlu because we are in favor of 2 choices.”
