Sunday, April 10, 2022

During the period of 2001-2022, AKP Chairman and President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who took part in the political scene, lived and lived. “Erdogan Affair” I continue the series.

7. Erdogan case:

Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, then Prime Minister and Chairman of the AKP, announced the candidates for the presidency, replacing Ahmet Necdet Sezer, whose mandate expired on May 16, 2007:

“Our candidate is Abdullah Gül, my brother, with whom we walked this path and with whom we founded this movement…”

Gul received 357 affirmative votes in the first round of the April 7 presidential election, but as 367 could not be reached, the election was postponed to the second round.

Sabih Kanadoğlu, then Attorney General of the Supreme Court “The decision quorum should be 367” introduces the rule.

All eyes turned to ANAP President Erkan Mumcu and DYP President Mehmet Ağar for the attendance of 367 deputies at the General Assembly.

If the deputies of these two parties participated in the General Assembly of the Assembly, the number 367 would be completed and Abdullah Gül would be elected president.

Ağar declared that the DYP would not enter parliament.

Mumcu, on the other hand, extended the rally he was holding within his party and prevented ANAP members from entering parliament.

Following the lawsuit filed by the CHP in the Constitutional Court, the election at the first session of the Assembly was annulled by its decision of May 1, 2007.

The 11th president could not be elected because the quorum of 367 people could not be reached during the two ballots on May 6, 2007.

While AKP supporters criticize from the CHP on file 367, why did they not criticize Mehmet Ağar and Erkan Mumcu?

To answer this question, let’s first look at Mumcu and Ağar:

Erkan Mumcu:

On November 3, 2002, he was elected deputy of the AKP Isparta.

He was Minister of National Education under Gul and Minister of Culture and Tourism under Erdogan.

He suddenly resigned from the ministry and the AKP on February 15, 2005, and returned to ANAP and was re-elected president on April 2, 2005.

Mehmed Agar:

On December 15, 2002, he was elected leader of the True Path Party.

On May 5, 2007, he became co-president of the Democratic Party, resulting from the merger of ANAP and DYP, with Erkan Mumcu.

Agar, who was imprisoned for 5 years in the Susurluk case, was released from Yenipazar prison, which was specially prepared for him with the AKP amnesty law, 361 days ago.

His son Tolga Ağar was elected as an AKP MP in 2018.

The merger and destruction of the ANAP and the DYP, two important centre-right parties that will rival the AKP. “Recep Tayyip Erdogan Project” allegedly.

8. Erdogan case:

The number of 367, untraceable due to lack of support from Ağar and Mumcu in parliament, caused a presidential crisis;

Erdogan and the AKP have created a perception of “victimization” in the eyes of society.

In the early elections of July 22, 2007, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s AKP voted 363 with 34.28%, Deniz Baykal’s CHP 112 with 19.39%, Devlet Bahçeli’s MHP with 14.27% and 71% .

The AKP again faced issue 367, but;

Where does the surprise support come from?

Yes, said Devlet Bahçeli;

“We will enter parliament, there will be no problems 367”

With the support of the MHP, 367 were passed and in the third round of the August 20 presidential election, Abdullah Gul was elected 11th president with 339 votes.

9. Erdogan case:

After the Crisis of 367, Erdoğan began to intensify the alliance with the Fethullah Gülen community to strengthen himself.

Maintaining the ideological affinity between Fethullah Gülen’s powerful media community and the AKP, Erdoğan began promoting those who appoint Gülenists to the state bureaucracy, military and police and placing them in critical positions. .

Erdogan, supported by the United States “Master” He started walking hand in hand with Fethullah Gülen. The doors of the AKP and state executives have been opened to FETO members.

First “The Ergenekon Plot” Following the discovery of 27 hand grenades in a slum in Ümraniye on June 12, 2007, the fugitive today Zekeriya Oz, member of FETO starts with

soldiers in 2003-2004. “Overthrow the government with a coup” with the complaint “Sarıkız, Moonlight, Yakamoz and Glove” He joined the investigation by prosecutors affiliated with FETO.

“victimization” Taking advantage of the atmosphere created by its perceptions, the Erdogan government prepared a constitutional amendment.

The constitutional amendment provided for the election of the President by universal suffrage for a period of 5 years and the election of a person at most twice.

The AKP, DTP, SHP, BBP, Saadet, Democrat and Fatherland parties form the “yes” front.

MHP in parliament, “Yeah” voted, but Devlet Bahçeli, 4 days before the referendum, on October 17. “Nope” makes the call.

It resulted in its submission to a public vote on October 21, 2007. The constitutional amendment was approved with 68.9% of the vote.
