50+1 statement from Minister of Justice Yılmaz Tunç

Minister of Justice Yılmaz Tunç spoke about the reduction of the 50+1 requirement in the presidential election, which Erdoğan brought to the public agenda again.

Minister of Justice Yılmaz Tunç answered journalists’ questions after the “Today’s Children’s Rights in Tomorrow’s World” program held at the Notaries Union.

Minister Tunç spoke about the issue regarding the reduction of the 50 percent plus 1 condition, which was brought to the agenda again by AKP President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan upon his return from his visit to Germany.

Tunç made the following evaluations on the subject:

“If there is a need for revision or reform in this system, it cannot be avoided and we have been in the presence of our nation for 21 years with the regulations covering the need for continuous development, change and reform, both the judicial reform strategy document and the constitutional amendments. The appreciation in this regard is of course the Great Turkey.” “It belongs to the National Assembly. All of these can be discussed and discussed in line with the goal of the new constitution, and of course, these are issues that can be reached within the framework of an agreement in the Parliament.”


Answering a question regarding the new indictment prepared against Ogün Samast, the murderer of Hrant Dink, Tunç said, “There are some issues that the public does not know about the process of the last indictment. While the trial was continuing after the murder was committed in 2007, the issue of terrorist organization or organization within the scope of Article 220 was discussed. And the instigators and the shooter were sentenced within the scope of the organization mentioned in Article 220, which is not a terrorist organization. After these decisions were finalized, a new investigation began, especially after the coup attempt in 2016, regarding whether this murder was committed for the purposes of FETO. Within the scope of this investigation, convictions were given for public officials at the Istanbul 14th High Criminal Court and were approved by the Supreme Court of Appeals. And of course, with the verdict, a criminal complaint was made to the Juvenile Court regarding the defendant, Ogün Samast, who was released. A criminal complaint was also filed against other instigators. The case of the instigators is currently continuing in the High Criminal Court. An indictment was also issued for the shooter, who was reported to the other juvenile court. It was extradited in April due to some deficiencies in the indictment. Afterwards, these deficiencies were corrected and the new indictment was submitted to the juvenile court again. “This is the situation,” he said.
