Baku, Azerbaijan, July 19
Head of the Turkish oppositional Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), Devlet Bahceli has condemned the citizens’ lynching the servicemen who participated in the coup attempt in the country, the Haber7 newspaper reported July 19.
He said nationalism and democracy are unified against any coup threat.
“A military coup won’t resolve problems. Turkish people have long ago made a decision regarding the way of changing the government through democratic means,” added Bahceli.
He pointed out that MHP will support the ruling Justice and Development Party if it expresses readiness to vote for reinstating the death penalty in Turkey.
On July 15 evening, Turkish authorities said a military coup attempt took place in the country.
Meanwhile, a group of servicemen announced about transition of power to them.
However, the rebelling servicemen started to surrender July 16 and Turkish authorities said the coup attempt failed.
Over 200 people have been killed in Turkey as a result of the coup attempt.
