Turkish party leader urges women and young people to go into politics

Main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu on Aug. 27 called on women and young people to get more involved in politics, on the second day of the ongoing “justice congress” in the northwestern Turkish province of Çanakkale. 

“In the congress a special section and panel have been opened for our women. I have only one wish from you: Get more involved in politics,” Kılıçdaroğlu said, visiting the tent dedicated to women’s issues on the historic Gallipoli peninsula, where the congress is ongoing. 

Visiting the “International Socialist Youth Organizations” tent, the CHP urged young people to be more determined in the “struggle for society.” 

“Do not wait for someone else to open up space for you. Fight for yourself. Your struggle will be a struggle for this society. Your struggle will be a struggle for democracy,” Kılıçdaroğlu reportedly said during the visit.
