The Ad Hoc Committee, which was formed to discuss the issues related to the abolition or change of the Mixed Vote System in the Election and Referendum Law, met today.
According to the statement made by the Parliament, at the meeting, the People's Party and the Communal Democracy Party stated that they could not support the proposal regarding the abolition of the mixed voting system at this stage, with their justifications.
It was stated that it was not possible to accept the proposal to abolish the mixed voting system, since the committee's mandate requires a unanimous decision.
The Republican Turkish Party stated that the approach they adopted was to abolish mixed votes, but that the principle of "unanimity" was adopted during the establishment of the committee, and if this could not be achieved, improvements were needed to eliminate the possibility of invalid votes arising from the current regulation.
At the meeting, suggestions for changing the mixed voting system instead of abolishing it were also discussed.
Representatives of the National Unity Party stated that their demand as a party is not to change the mixed vote, but to abolish it, and stated that they will evaluate the proposals in this direction at the party's authorized committees.
