Turkish Deputy PM says Turkey needs a new constitution
Turkish deputy prime minister said on Saturday Turkey needed a new constitution, Anadolu Agencu reported.
Replying to questions of reporters, State Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc said there was need for a new constitution which included EU norms, and which was more democrat and more civil.
Turkey's reputable attitude in foreign policy and its efforts for global peace have been watched by the world with a great appreciation, he said.
Responding to a question, Arinc said they considered that Turkey did not need an early election. "The government has been fulfilling its task successfully. The opposition parties don't have sufficient power and capacity for an early election. They may aim at spoiling political and economic stability in the country," Arinc said.
If there is an early election in the country, no one could prevent the Justice and Development (AK) Party from coming into political power, he said.
