Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct. 1 / Trend R.Hafizoglu /
The package of measures for democratization does not take into account the rights of the Turkish people, Turkish Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) leader Devlet Bahceli said, Anadolu agency reported on Tuesday.
According to the opposition leader, the adopted package is detrimental to the interests of the people and contrary to the public interest.
On Sept. 30, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced a new package of measures for the country's democratisation.
According to the new package, all political parties in Turkey will move to a system of two chairmen, that is two will lead the parties.
Moreover, Prime Minister said that during the election campaign, parties may use not only Turkish, but also other languages spoken in the country.
According to the package of measures, a term of imprisonment for crimes motivated by racial hatred will be increased by three years to eliminate inter-ethnic conflict in the country.
The democratisation package also envisages lifting the ban on hijab headscarves in the Turkish state organisations, except for the Armed Forces.
Today Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that a package of measures for democratisation will open up new economic opportunities for Turkey and similar reforms will also be carried out in Turkey in the near future.
