Turkey’s opposition lawmakers not to take oath during parliament’s swearing-in ceremony

from Yahoo news
ANKARA, Turkey – Turkey’s main opposition party said none of its newly elected lawmakers would take the oath in parliament’s swearing-in ceremony on Tuesday, joining a Kurdish party that is boycotting the session in a protest over court rulings that stripped one legislator of his seat and refused to release eight others from jail.

BDP belongs in Parliament

For a couple of days now the blame game has been on when it comes to the impossibility of several elected deputies taking their seats in Parliament.

First day crisis

Yesterday?s oath-taking ceremony in Parliament was overshadowed by the boycott of the Republican People?s Party (CHP) and Peace and Democracy Party (BDP)-backed deputies, who made the move in protest of some of their deputies being barred from entering Parliament due to a prior conviction and ongoing cases.

The oath crisis

By the time you read this article, the oath crisis in Parliament will have taken shape. The pro-Kurdish Peace and Democracy Party (BDP) will definitely boycott the oath ceremony on the grounds that its celebrated member, Hatip Dicle, has been denied the right to take his seat in Parliament due to a last-minute ruling of the Supreme Election Board (YSK) holding that he is short 39 days of imprisonment for a previous violation of the Anti-Terror Law.
