We will make a decision either on Tuesday or Wednesday, said Constitutional Court Chief Judge Tulay Tugcu on Sunday regarding Republican People's Party's (CHP) application to the court for the cancellation of the first round of presidential elections.
Tugcu told reporters that she thinks the rapporteur will present his report to members on Monday. "I think we will examine the report before the second round of election," she added.
Tugcu noted that Constitutional Court always defends the supremacy of Constitution and law, and makes its decisions accordingly.
"We consider to decide on application of CHP on Tuesday, but we may make the decision on Wednesday," she noted.
CHP submitted its application to Constitutional Court about the first round of the presidential election with the signatures of 134 MPs on the ground that the voting was contrary to the parliamentary by-law and the Constitution.
