TACSO Turkey Support to the Constitutional Process

One of the post-election priorities in Turkey has become the creation of a new constitution. The government has made this a priority, and has established the Constitutional Commission within the parliament, inclusive of the different political parties in parliament, and responsible for drafting the new constitution.

It is essential at this time, that civil society also become part of this process, and that mechanisms for participation are defined in advance in order to ensure that all groups have the possibility to express their views for a new constitution.
