Joint Statement by Communist & Workers' Parties about June 24th elections in Turkey

As the communist and workers’ parties listed below, we condemn the Turkish government’s fait accompli in the strongest way possible, which prevented the Communist Party of Turkey from running for the elections on June 24th as one of the candidate parties.

We call on the people of Turkey for refusing to choose between one or another actor of the capitalist order. 
We invite you all to vote for the independent candidates of “This Social Order Must Change” Platform (Bu Düzen Değişmeli Platformu) and to raise the flag of socialism in and after the elections. Do not let the bourgeoisie to hold your future in their hands!

We express our comradely support and solidarity to all independent candidates running for the upcoming elections under the “This Social Order Must Change” Platform, that have taken the responsibility to serve as the source of hope and voice for the working class of Turkey.
