Parliamentary Speaker Cemil Çiçek has painted a gloomy picture for the ultimate success of a legislative panel tasked with drafting a new Constitution even while warning of the societal anger that would be directed at the commission amid any such failure.
Despite Erdoğan’s criticism of the panel, Çiçek said March 31 that the parties present at the commission would submit their own drafts for a new charter on April 5. “The most productive and the most convenient period is left behind, particularly because of the election [calendar],” Çiçek said.

Local elections are scheduled to be held in March 2014 while presidential elections are set to be held in summer 2014. These elections will be followed by parliamentary elections in 2015.

Noting that he would gather with commission members for a review, Çiçek said, “If they do not present me a very valid and persuasive reason in regards to additional time … then the saying ‘Don’t hurry it up’ may not be satisfactory by itself for [seeking] additional time.”
Asked about his plans in the event that the commission fails to produce a text, Çiçek said he would divest himself of responsibility for the subsequent process. On March 29, Erdoğan said the AKP could try negotiating with the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) to bring an end to the deadlocked discussions. The last option would be to bring the draft to a referendum together with the Peace and Democracy Party (BDP), he said.



Very critical 2 years. 2 elections in next year and  the next general election in 2015.

We all hoped there would be a new constitution too. A new one, the first ever constitution which would be made by none army people under normal circumstances.
