    This is not really a discussion thread.

    What does the future hold for Turkey's nationalists?
    Party founder Alparslan Türkeş, referred to by the nationalists as “başbuğ” (commander), was one of the early leaders of the May 27, 1960, military coup as a young colonel. Türkeş, who was court-martialed in 1945 on later-dismissed charges of “fascist and racist activities,” was expelled by an internal coup within the junta. He later joined the Republican Peasants’ Nation Party, or CKMP, and was elected its chairman. In 1969 the CKMP was renamed the MHP.

    Türkeş took the rightist attitudes of predecessors such as Nihal Atsız, who is known for his explicitly racist views, and transformed them into a powerful political force. In 1965, Türkeş released a political pamphlet titled “Dokuz Işık Doktrini” (The Nine Lights Doctrine) listing nine basic principles that formed the core of the main nationalist ideology in Turkey: nationalism, idealism, moralism, societalism, scientism, independentism, ruralism, progressivism, populism, industrialism, and technologism.
    (...)
    As the 2011 general elections approach, how the MHP’s traditional supporters will vote is a question of keen interest to all political parties. (...) Do they believe the solution to the party’s woes lies in change or in going back to its roots? Will they take to the streets again? Is the MHP in its death throes, or simply preparing for another resurrection? Are its areas of support within the country shifting? What advantages does the party hold and what challenges does it face going into the election?

    Today Colonel Türkeş' movement has an electoral base of 15-20% of Turkish voters.

    After the 2011 elections, there will be drafted a new constitution, the September 2010 referendum for constitutional amendments were just a bridgeover to meet pressing EU demands during the Accession talks.
    After elections are over and there is renewed legitimation of the incoming government, there will be formed a new constitution.

    In the new constitution Turkey probably will switch her political system to Presidential Democracy like in the USA. It would give the President unmatched power. In 2014 (very unlikely even in 2012) Mr. Erdogan could become President of the Republic in its new political system, if Mr. Erdogan wins the 2011 elections..

    Turkey is irrelevant. Even the Eurotrash don't want you.
