Turkish spekaer: Court verdict violates parliament right

 

Turkish Parliament Speaker Mehmet Ali Sahin said about the verdict of the country's top legal body about invalidation of some parts of the government's constitutional amendment law, "the Constitutional Court has violated the parliament's right of legislative."

"As the speaker of the parliament, I cannot remain silent against this violation. It is my duty to protect the parliament's rights," Sahin said.

Sahin left for Mongolia on a state visit.

Prior to his departure, Sahin told reporters, "I attach importance whether or not other state organs violated the parliament's right of sovereignty over constitutional amendments. The Constitutional Court has violated the parliament's right of legislative. This absolute and indivisible right belongs to only the parliament. As the speaker of the parliament, I cannot remain silent against this violation. It is my duty to protect the parliament's rights.

Sahin is set to attend the Naadam Festival celebrations, a national holiday organized on July 11-13 every year including competition of the fastest horses' racing, wrestling of powerful wrestlers and archery.

He will meet with Mongolian President Tsakhia Elbegdorj, Parliament Speaker Damdin Demberel and Prime Minister Sukhbaatar Batbold.

Sahin is expected to return to Turkey on July 12.
