Tuncay Özkan and the Bagimsiz Cumhuriyet Partisi
Prof. Soysal refued the allegations that Özkan will take over the party. He put that, there will be an interlocking with the Bizkackisiyiz Platform and the BCP. This will be a marriage of two desperate pairs. The BCP is disconnected from the masses, the Özkan clique is disconnected from a political roof. It will be interesting to see, whether the Platform who nevertheless embodies in itself some civil society organisations will manage to re-establish itself within the BCP.
Prof. Soysal’s choice is also interesting. The nationalist, populist, Kemalist platform and another CHP, is this what Turkey really needs? Populist politicians aspiring to elevate themselves to the national level, an ego masturbation for the masses.
