DEM Party co-chairs protested the police raid on Hakkari Municipality and said, “Enough is enough.”

Co-mayor Mehmet Sıddık Nakit was taken into custody in Van (Wan).

DEM Party co-chairs Tülay Hatimoğulları and Tuncer Bakırhan reacted on their social media accounts.

Bakırhan said: “Disregarding the will of the people, the AKP-MHP resorted to unlawful detention against the legitimate and democratic representatives of the people through the judiciary and police under its command. The detention of our Hakkari Municipality co-mayor is a dark and dirty lawlessness. We reject this coup, trustee and sworn anti-Kurdish mentality. We never impose our will on anyone. We say enough is enough.”

Bakırhan said: “We express that unlawful practices that will harm Turkey’s democratic future should be abandoned immediately. We call on all democratic, revolutionary and peace-loving circles, especially our people, to stand by the people of Hakkari and show their democratic reaction against this usurpation of will.”

Tülay Hatimoğulları said: “The government, which was defeated by the will of the people at the ballot box, is again seeking to usurp the people’s will. We will never bow to this trustee mentality that tried to usurp our municipality by police force and detained our co-mayor Mehmet Sıddık Akis. This attack is not only an attack against the will of the people of Hakkari, but also against the will of all the people of Turkey. We call on everyone who is in favor of democracy to take a stand against the trustee mentality.”
