HDP member of parliament Mensur Işık has been expelled from the party for violence against his wife. This was announced by the HDP deputy chair Meral Danış Beştaş at a press conference in Amed (Diyarbakir). The exclusion of the MP from Muş is valid for two years.
Beştaş emphasized that the HDP is based on the principle that the statement of the woman concerned has priority in cases of violence against women. Accordingly, the disciplinary committee has heard both sides and decided on a two-year exclusion. "For us, violence is unacceptable as an HDP, and this applies regardless of who is perpetrating it against whom. Our position on this is clear," said the HDP's deputy chair.
