WWHR demanded Akşener to maintain a clear stance against the constitutional imposition via which the government tries to turn the lives of women and LGBTI+s into an election material within the scope of the letter titled “We say no to any constitutional amendment that speaks about our lives without our consent just a few months before the elections!”
Within the scope of the letter WWHR stated that they had learned from the statements of İYİ Party officials that İyi Party was on the anvil of a preparation of alternative constitutional proposal “which doesn’t include radical changes in order to make the proposal ‘acceptable’ to Justice and Development Party (AKP)and Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) and they underlined that İYİ Party had not received opinions of women, LGBTI+ and children associations during the preparation process of the proposal planned to be brought to the parliament.
