"According to Milliyet, Rakel Dink, Akin Birdal, and Gencay Gursoy will be offered the opportunity to run as independent candidates by the Kurdish DTP. According to the same report, famed Kurdish singer Ferhat Tunc has already applied with DTP to become an independent candidate from Dersim.
Rakel Dink is the widow of Hrant Dink, who was murdered by the Deep State in January of this year. Akin Birdal, who survived an assassination attempt by the Deep State in 1998, has long been in the fight for human rights in Turkey, having served many years as the Istanbul IHD head. Gencay Gursoy is the chief of the Turkish Doctor's Union.
And so the elections become much more interesting as DTP begins to make its moves. We should know more by next week, when all shall be revealed."

I believe it is the type of philosophy that inspires people. I believe it's a philosophy that inherits the greatness of our economy. I believe that we are the party of the entrepreneur. I believe we're the party of the doer, the dreamer, the people that work."the philsopherer in chief.
