Turkey's president said on Friday that political representation at the parliament should be diversified, Anadolu agency reported.
President Abdullah Gul said a parliament in which all leading political movements in the country were not represented would be a deficient parliament.
"This will reflect all differences among ourselves to politics," Gul addressed the parliament on the first day of its new legislative year.
Gul said the second important factor he wanted to underline for democracy was encouraging participation.
"Participation of not only political parties but also all the society through NGOs in political process will contribute to solution of main problems in Turkey," Gul said.
Gul said the main issues in Turkey were identity discussions, rehabilitation of democratic standards, preparation of a new constitution, discussions about relationship between state, religion and society; and they required a common understanding between the government and opposition, political parties in and out of the parliament and the NGOs.
President Gul underlined necessity of renewing the language of politics to renew the democratic system, create an atmosphere of dialogue and help solution of problems with a common understanding.
Commenting on September 12th referendum on constitutional amendments, Gul said seeing different perspectives as "polarization" was an immature democratic understanding.
"These differences should be perceived as the indicator of a democratic richness, not exclusion, insult, negligence or cultural division," Gul said.
Gul said what was important was to meet expectations, sensitivities, concerns and hopes of all segments represented in the referendum, which was the duty of all political parties, particularly the ruling party, NGOs and other official institutions.
According to official results, 38.3 million of 52.1 million voters joined the referendum on constitutional amendments. The rate of participation is 73.71 percent. 37.6 million votes were valid, 725,062 of them were invalid.
Around 21.7 million people voted in favor of constitutional amendments, whereas 15.8 million voted against it.
Thus, 57.88 of the votes were "yes" and 42.12 percent were "no".
