TUSIAD’s Paker speaks out in favor of constitutional reforms

Can Paker, a leading member of the Turkish Industrialists and Businessmen’s Association (TÜSİAD), the elite business club in Turkey, has said he will vote in favor of a proposed package of constitutional amendments in the September 12 referendum.TÜSİAD’s unusual silence over such a significant national issue.

TUSIAD has maintained a determined silence on this national issue, despite support for the Constitutional Amendments package from the European Union and the Council of Europe.  Opposition to the Amendments package by all of Turkey’s main Opposition parties appears to have dictated this position of official TUSIAD neutrality.
