TRT World: MHP Election Manifesto

"NO NEGOTIATION BUT COMBAT" Known for its strong opposition to the peace process due to negotiations with the outlawed PKK to end years-long armed conflict, Turkey’s nationalist political party, Nationalist Movement Party, pledges “no talks with PKK” in its election manifesto. Harshly criticising President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and the AK Party government for having engaged in talks in efforts to successfully finalise the process, the chairman of MHP, Devlet Bahceli, vows “to not negotiate, but combat terror.” Explaining his position about "combatting terrorism”, Bahceli said the party would prepare a new constitution to end separatism and terrorism also strengthen the brotherhood and national unity in Turkey. PROMISES REGARDING ECONOMY Adopting the slogan “Walk With Us Turkey,” the other focus of the party’s election manifesto is the economy. The MHP promises to improve the situation of Turkey’s economically disadvantaged by lifting taxes on diesel and fertiliser, creating 700,000 jobs, bringing the national income per person to $13.3K, and increasing exports to $238 billion, while keeping annual growth at 5.2 percent between 2016 and 2019, which Bahceli calls the “first governance period.” The MHP also promises to raise the net minimum wage to $518. and in addition to this, pledges that minimum wage earners who live in big cities will be paid an $37 as a transportation subsidy. Additionally, those who do not have a house will receive an additional $92 per month in rental aid. This will allow a minimum wage earner living in a big city to earn as much as $646 as the party suggests. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/trtworld Twitter: https://twitter.com/trtworld
