Freedom Left Group: The CHP must act against trustees

The Freedom Left Group, which includes the CHP, urged the CHP to take action against the trustees.

The Freedom Left Group, consisting of members of the Central Executive Committee, Party Assembly and High Disciplinary Committee, deputies, mayors, politicians and academicians who have served in the past and still serving in the CHP, called on the CHP to take action against the AKP-MHP decision to appoint trustees to the municipalities of Amed, Van and Mardin.

In its statement the Freedom Left Group says: "We oppose unlawfulness and injustice. The trustee appointments have no effect for us. We condemn the violence and ill-treatment by the security forces of civilian people, who react peacefully to this unfair practice.

All opposition parties, especially the Republican People's Party (CHP) and democratic organizations, civil society representatives and individuals who believe in democracy should advocate equality, rights and justice in a clear and high tone and express solidarity with the Mayors of Diyarbakır, Mardin and Van.

We will not allow the disruption of the social peace and solidarity we are trying to build."
