Semih Balaban said, “Our bylaws have had a positive impact. “I consider the headquarters to take our request seriously,” he said. Balaban, who shared his expectations regarding the new bylaws, stated that they attach importance to the issue of determining the deputies, mayors and city council members through intra-party elections.

Regarding the presidential debates, Balaban said, “We are not interested in a discussion over individuals. We want to change the mindset. If democracy is ensured within the party, everyone will be comfortable. We are in a common opinion at the bylaws congress,” he said.
