Istanbul, June 2 () - Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) co-chair Selahattin Demirtaş challenged Turkey’s president and prime minister to attend a televised live discussion program with him, where they could openly debate.
“I called on him [President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan] and his smaller one [Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu]. Let’s [have a] discussion on TV; do you dare? If you trust yourself, your knowledge and wisdom, let’s appear alone. If you want, bring 100 advisors with you. Let’s openly [have a] discussion live” Demirtaş said June 1, during his party’s rally in the southern province of Bitlis.
Demirtaş also said they needed to stop a government that was built on lies and fraud and which harmed humane, Islamic and conscious values.
Stating the HDP would establish a freedom and equality-based government, Demirtaş said nobody could be able to say anything against another’s’ attire.
