The Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) announced it would punish deputies who say “no” to a constitutional amendment package that will be voted in a referendum on April 16, the T24 news website reported on Saturday.
“This is unforgivable. What is needed will be done,” said Mevlüt Karakaya, deputy chairman of the MHP, when speaking about measures to be taken against MHP deputies who publicly oppose the constitutional amendment package.
“Our slogan is decided: ‘We took an oath for this country. Essential.’ ‘Yes’ for the country, the flag and the survival of Turkishness,” said Karakaya, adding that MHP organizations would go out among the people to work for a “yes” vote in the referendum.
