Prof Üskül: 'Kemalism should be excluded from constitution'

AK Party's new deputy law professor Zafer Üskül made an interesting suggestion.

"The constitution should be civilian and colorless. However, the current constitution has the tracks of Kemalist ideology. Atatürk nationalism and principles and reforms should not be included in the constitution."

AK Party's lawyer Professor Zafer Üskül said: "the fact that these expressions are not included in the civilian constitution does not decrease their significance."

While defining the "civilian and colorless constitution" in his mind, AK Party's lawyer Professor Zafer Üskül defended that the concepts in the introduction of the constitution such as "Atatürk nationalism" and "Atatürk principles and reforms" which are the reflections of Kemalist ideology are not necessary.

Referring to a question about the meaning of a civilian and colorless constitution, Üskül said: "the constitutions established with undemocratic ways are subject to lots of criticism and are not embraced. There should be a colorless constitution. A constitution that does not stipulate or impose any ideology is necessary."
