MHP’s lawyers started working to change the structure of the Constitutional Court


According to the information obtained by the Republic, in the MHP, the adjective “high court” used for the AYM “which started its activities with the 1961 Constitution” is defined as “problematic” and it is thought that an adjective like “Supreme Court” is needed instead. It is pointed out that the AYM “has the authority to supervise laws and decrees, performs financial audits according to the Law of Political Parties and decides on these issues, has the ‘power to close down’ parties” and it is stated that all these stages should be regulated. MHP’s right of individual application to the Constitutional Court is also under the headings that MHP finds problematic.

According to the regulation that the MHP’s lawyers are working on, it points out that “the supreme court proceedings should be held in the Supreme Court Penal Board, which has expertise on the subject”. However, this requires a constitutional change. Considering the distribution of the deputies of political parties, the number of AKP and MHP deputies is not sufficient for constitutional change.

While drawing attention to the need to change the “voting system” in the structure of the Constitutional Court, it is suggested that decisions should be made by a qualified majority of 2 out of 3, not by majority.

MHP also finds it “problematic” to convene the general assembly with 10 of the 15 members in the trials where important decisions are taken, and underlines that “it is necessary to allow meetings with the full number of members of the Constitutional Court”.

In addition, it is emphasized that “the decision and the reason should be announced at the same time” in order not to cause public debate after the Constitutional Court’s “acceptance” or “rejection” decisions regarding any decision. Party staffs will hold meetings with the parties that have groups in the Parliament after the work is completed.
