We will Replace the Constitution with a More Democratic Version


ANKARA – President Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan hopes the new constitution being drafted for the country will be more democratic and ready for public debate in 2022.

He explained that the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) would complete work on a new constitution.
