A new political party called the Electronic Democracy Party, or e-Party, has emerged in Turkey weeks before the country enters election year in 2015.
Turkish parliamentarian Emrehan Halici launched the party Wednesday in Ankara.
Halici said he had submitted the petition for the new party at the Turkish Interior Ministry.
The parliamentarian was a member of the opposition group, the Republican Peoples Party or the CHP, until September.
The party founder said the principles of his e-Party could be accessed online. He claimed that many people have already expressed interest.
He said members of the newly formed party were mainly tech-savvy young people. The party aims to contact people face-to-face as well, he said.
According to Turkey’s Supreme Election Board, 25 parties registered to participate in the country’s last local elections in March 2014.
