Turkish main opposition leader vows support to Gezi protesters

 

The main opposition leader has vowed to support the decisions of the Taksim Gezi Park protesters regardless of what they decide, saying that the demonstrators are asking for freedom and democracy, the same things his party demands.

“We respect and support the decisions of demonstrators regardless of what they decide on, whether to stay in or leave the park,” the Republican People’s Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu told members of foreign media at a meeting in Istanbul today.
