Turkey's MHP says against govt reforms

An executive of Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) said on Wednesday that his party was against the government's Constitutional amendment package.

Speaking to reporters, MHP group acting chairman Mehmet Sandir said that MHP would not support the package.

Noting that MHP did not think the package was "sincere, honest and serious", Sandir said that Constitutional amendment was not made through majority of votes; the decision to amend the Constitution was made unanimously.

Constitutional amendment package was prepared by the government and envisages amendments to 22 articles of the Constitution.

On Monday, a delegation of the ruling Justice & Development (AK) Party paid visits to the Republican People's Party (CHP), the Peace and Democracy Party (BDP) and MHP to give information about the Constitutional amendment package.

Main secularist opposition CHP also stated it would not support the package.
