As the EU Envoy of the Turkish president frontrunner Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu and the head of the Republican People’s Party (CHP) Representation to the EU, I am filled with confidence about the future of a democratic Turkiye in Europe – writes Kader Sevinç, Head of CHP Representation to the EU, PES Presidency Member.

Sekmadienį įvyksiančių esminių 2023 m. rinkimų metu mūsų šešių partijų koalicijos blokas Tautų aljansas nubrėžė demokratinės pertvarkos planą, kuris mus nukreips tikros Europos demokratijos link.

Under the leadership of presidential candidate Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, the Nation Alliance coalition is committed to transforming Turkiye into a nation that upholds democratic values. As the second-largest political family represented in the EU, the Party of European Socialists (PES) has expressed its support for Kılıçdaroğlu’s pledge to fast-track the EU visa liberalisation process for Turkish citizens. The PES sees Kılıçdaroğlu and the united opposition as a beacon of hope for democracy, human rights, freedom, cooperation, and bringing Turkiye closer to Europe.

Our coalition’s vision encompasses various key elements. We aim to prioritise the democratisation of Turkiye, strengthen ties with EU institutions and member states, swiftly complete the EU visa liberalisation process for Turkish citizens, revitalise EU membership negotiations, and implement the rulings of the European Court of Human Rights. Additionally, we aspire to enhance Turkiye’s credibility as a NATO member, contributing to the security and stability of Europe amid geopolitical and economic uncertainties.

The Nation Alliance coalition, with its largest member, the CHP, is fully committed to meeting the EU’s 72 visa liberalisation criteria. Kılıçdaroğlu, as our frontrunner joint presidential candidate, has pledged to fulfill the remaining five benchmarks within the first three months of the new government. These benchmarks include measures to prevent corruption, align legislation on personal data and anti-terror laws with EU standards, establish an operational cooperation agreement with Europol, and provide effective judicial cooperation in criminal matters to all EU member states.

As European social democrats and progressives, we are delighted to have the CHP and Kılıçdaroğlu’s leadership driving progress towards fulfilling the remaining critical criteria for visa liberalisation. Turkiye is an essential partner for us, and we support any steps that bring the country closer to the fundamental values we share, as stated by PES Executive Secretary General Giacomo Filibeck.

Nuo 2008 m. CHP turi atstovybę prie ES Briuselyje, aktyviai prisideda prie daugiamačių ES ir Turkijos santykių komunikacijos kanalų ir stojimo į ES sistemos. Stengiamės palaikyti aukšto lygio ryšius su ES ir aktyviai dalyvauti VES susitikimuose, užtikrindami konstruktyvų ir prasmingą bendradarbiavimą.

Sunday’s elections in Turkiye present a historic opportunity for our citizens to elect a fully democratic government. Recognised as the most significant election in Europe in 2023 due to its potential impact on the Western world, it holds the promise of establishing a democratic and prosperous Turkiye that is respected internationally on its path to EU accession.

These elections will demonstrate that democratic means can peacefully bring about a change in an authoritarian government, even in the face of unjust conditions and ongoing oppression against the opposition. Turkiye, once again, has the potential to inspire nations fighting autocratic regimes. Let us not forget that our Republic’s founder, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, inspired reformers across Europe and the world with his commitment to secularism and the will of the people, laying the foundation for the Republic of Turkiye.

In conclusion, I firmly believe that Turkiye’s future lies within the European democratic family. Our vision, backed by the Nation Alliance coalition and the support of progressive forces in Europe, will pave the way for Turkiye to realise its full potential as a democratic and prosperous nation. By prioritising democratisation, upholding the rule of law, and strengthening our ties with the EU, Turkiye can bridge the gap between our shared values and aspirations.

The road to EU accession may present challenges but we are prepared to tackle them head-on. Our commitment to meeting the EU’s visa liberalisation criteria is unwavering, and we understand the importance of aligning our legislation with European standards. We are determined to combat corruption, protect personal data, and enhance our cooperation with Europol to ensure effective law enforcement.

Be to, pripažįstame Europos Žmogaus Teisių Teismo sprendimų įgyvendinimo svarbą. Pagarba žmogaus teisėms ir pagrindinėms laisvėms yra ne tik teisinė pareiga, bet ir moralinis reikalavimas. Laikydamiesi šių principų, Turkiye gali sustiprinti savo, kaip patikimo partnerio, poziciją tarptautinėje bendruomenėje.

As we aspire to become a more credible member of NATO, we understand the crucial role we play in contributing to the security and stability of Europe. In an era marked by global uncertainty, our commitment to NATO’s values and collective defense is unwavering. By actively engaging in regional and global security initiatives, we can foster stronger alliances and promote peace in a volatile world.

Artėjantys rinkimai Turkijoje suteikia mums galimybę parodyti savo demokratijos stiprybę. Nepaisant iššūkių ir kliūčių, su kuriomis susiduria opozicija, mes ir toliau tvirtai tikime, kad žmonių galia gali įveikti bet kokias negandas. Naudodami savo demokratines teises siunčiame pasauliui galingą žinią: Turkija yra tauta, įsipareigojusi siekti laisvės, teisingumo ir lygybės.

We draw inspiration from the legacy of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, whose visionary leadership transformed Turkiye into a modern, secular Republic. His ideals continue to resonate today as we strive to build a society where diversity is celebrated, and individual rights are protected. Atatürk’s influence extended far beyond our borders, igniting the aspirations of democratic activists around the globe. We stand proudly in his footsteps, advocating for a Turkiye that embodies the values he hold dear.

Kelias link demokratinės Turkijos Europoje gali būti nelengvas, tačiau su ryžtu, vienybe ir sąjungininkų palaikymu galime įveikti bet kokias kliūtis. Kviečiame Europos Sąjungą pradėti konstruktyvų dialogą su mumis, pripažįstant, kad mūsų bendros vertybės sudaro tvirtos ir klestinčios partnerystės pagrindą.

Pabaigai, mes išliekame optimistiškai nusiteikę dėl Turkijos, kaip demokratinės Europos šeimos narės, ateities. Dėl savo nepajudinamo įsipareigojimo laikytis demokratijos principų, teisinės valstybės ir žmogaus teisių, galime nutiesti kelią šviesesnio rytojaus link. Pasinaudokime šia istorine galimybe ir dirbkime kartu, kad sukurtume Turkiją, kuri ne tik atitiktų stojimo į ES kriterijus, bet ir būtų demokratijos ir pažangos švyturys, kuriuo pasaulis galėtų žavėtis.
