TRT World: AK Party Election Manifesto

MANIFEST FOR NEW TURKEY Described as conservative democratic party, the governing Justice and Development Party promises ‘New Turkey’ as manifest in its election campaign consisting 100 articles and pledges to conclude them by 2023 on the centennial of Turkish Republic. The AK Party has been given consent by majority voters to govern the country for the past 12 years and undertook many critical democratic reforms both economically and socially that changed country’s fate. Despite enduring a rocky process due to interventions to stop the party and its founding leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan, he was elected as president with 52 percent of votes in 2014. Under the leadership of its new chair, Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said, main goal of the AK Party is to fight against influence of any non-governmental forces from politics, giving power only to people while providing the political, social and economic conditions necessary in order to ensure a prosperous living for all the country’s citizens. NEW CONSTITUTION AND PEACE PROCESS AK Party sets the writing of a new constitution and Kurdish-Turkish peace process as its primary objectives in the next term. Current constitution is a product of 1980 military coup and lacks civilian principles while conflict with the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party in over three decades claimed lives of 40,000 people and caused major economic damage. National development projects on the other hand, have been the key areas that has been addressed by the AK Party and still remain to be so. Structural transformation in economy, further transparency, generation of employment for dynamic young population, resolving problems of contract workers, new arrangement for retired citizens are among the promises of Davutoglu in addition to spreading urban renewal projects nationwide while continuing to provide a stable political and economic atmosphere.
