The Turkish small National Assemblies call the 3 candidates of Presidency to sit next to each other on TV and discuss.
The Turkish small National Assemblies has called the 3 candidates of Presidency to sit next to each other on TV and discuss. TkMM is calling for the three candidates with the campaign started with the #3AdayTvdeyanyana , #3ü1yerde and #UcAdayyanyanatelevizyona hashtags in social media and the video they prepared. TkMM also suggests that the candidates should answer the questions coming from the civil society in equal time intervals, just like it happens in the United States and in the other European countries.
If the suggestion comes true, a representative from 22 cities which TkMM is actively working in will ask questions, and the candidates will have 2 minutes of reply-time. There will be a chronometer on a curtain behind them, counting and showing the flowing time.
There will be complete freedom of expression in the programme – everyone will speak without censorship. However, certain things which restrict the usage of this freedom are prohibited: dialogue, interruption or teasing. There will be criticisms but there will not be insults or prejudiced expressions. Furthermore, the candidates are expected to request votes from the voters not by discrediting the other, but by speaking about themselves and what they plan to do.
When? After the religious holiday, between the dates 1 and 8 August, a date which suits all the candidates.
On which channel? On a channel which suits all the candidates.
What if they don’t agree? The event will be organized in a suitable place. TV channels, broadcast media organs , cameras and publications could be sent.
What if one of them does not show up? İhsanoğlu and Demirtaş have already made this call in their TV interviews. In a situation where the two participates, we don’t see it possible that Erdoğan could leave his chair empty.
Would this work?
Why wouldn’t it work? Of course, it doesn’t work only by will, it is required to turn this will into a democratic and a civil pressure on the political and the media ground. Each person’s contribution is important.
SUPPORT FROM OUR SUPPORTERS IS NECESSARY
This idea is currently only a nice presumption.
Aren’t all ideas are?
However, only will doesn’t suffice. In order for it to come true, a concentrated public support is needed.
A support like this would definitely affect the politics and the media.
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
There are many things to do.
To deliver this idea first to the social media, and around us, especially the addresses of the 3 candidates.
Erdoğan: @RT_Erdogan, @emin_ekmen, @mahirunal
İhsanoğlu: @profdrihsanoglu, @belovacikli, @OzlemGurses
Demirtaş: @hdpdemirtas, @ZulkufKurt, @zulkufkurtK
Good luck to all of us…
