    Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan yesterday visited Mugla and Manisa to woo voters’ support for his Justice and Development Party (AKP) in the July 22 general elections. Addressing the crowds, Erdogan criticized the stance of opposition parties in the aborted presidential election, saying that if the Motherland Party (ANAVATAN) and Democrat Party (DP) had participated in the voting, then a President, whose term in office has ended, wouldn’t have been continuing his tenure. Erdogan further stated that there were circles which wanted to saw seeds of discrimination within the nation, but his party wouldn’t allow this. Continuing his election campaign in Artvin, main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) leader Deniz Baykal said that his most significant capital in politics is his reliability, adding that he is determined to fulfill all of his commitments after coming to power in July 22 general elections, Baykal added that CHP government would be different from the former ones and make radical changes after coming to power. /Turkiye/

    [02] ARINC: “THE NEW PARLIAMENT MAY ELECT THE PRESIDENT”

    Speaking to the Kanal 24 yesterday, Parliament Speaker Bulent Arinc said that the new president wouldn’t be like President Ahmet Necdet Sezer. Upon a question about the controversy surrounding Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s remarks that he would seek consensus in the presidential election, Arinc noted that the July 22 elections are already being held as a result of the crisis stemming from the recent presidential election, which was blocked by the decision of the Constitutional Court. He added, “The new Parliament may elect the president.” /All papers/

    Speaking en route to Yalova and Gebze yesterday, Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul said that Ankara wouldn’t get permission from anyone, including the US for a possible cross-border operation into northern Iraq, adding that it didn’t need any support for this. Saying that Washington needed the support of the Kurdish administration to overcome difficulties it faced in Iraq, so tried to have good relations with the administration, Gul added that the US wouldn’t be there in the future, but Turkey would continue to be present in the region. /Turkiye/

    [04] SENER: “THE CONSTITUTION STIPULATES THAT PRESIDENT COULD BE ELECTED EITHER FROM PARLIAMENT OR OUTSIDE”

    Speaking after attending the 75th anniversary of the Turkish Language Association (TDK) yesterday, Deputy Prime Minister Abdullatif Sener said that there is need to see the parliamentary picture after July 22 general elections to comment on the next presidential election. Saying that he wouldn’t vote in next presidential election, since he wasn’t a candidate, Sener added he believed new Parliament would elect the new president. “The Constitution stipulates that the president could be elected either from Parliament or outside,” he said. “I believe it’s early to discuss this,” added Sener. /Milliyet/

    [05] AGAR: “I WON’T FORM A CONSTITUTION WITH INDEPENDENT DEPUTIES”

    Opposition Democrat Party (DP) leader Mehmet Agar yesterday visited Eskisehir Chamber of Industry, where he responded to reporters questions and said that they weren’t planning to form a coalition with independent deputies. “The ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) might have such an option, but we don’t,” he said, adding, “All people doing politics in Turkey should definitely reject violence and state that they have no link with the terrorist organization. Turkish society is expecting this. We don’t have desire for this kind of coalition.” Meanwhile, speaking to Star TV yesterday, opposition Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) leader Devlet Bahceli said, “If we have the parliamentary majority in the next term, we’ll bring back the execution. We’ll hold a referendum, if it is necessary for the country. If there’s a social demand and if MHP has 367 deputies, we’ll change the Constitution and bring back execution until the terrorism is terminated.” /Hurriyet/

    [06] TUZMEN: “TURKEY IS VERY CLOSE TO FOUR-DIGIT EXPORT FIGURES”

    Speaking at a groundbreaking ceremony in Mersin yesterday, State Minister Kursad Tuzmen said that recently Turkey’s exports rose from $17 billion to $100 billion, adding that Turkey was very close to four-digit export figures. “I believe that we’ll reach these figures in a short time,” he said. “Turkey is growing with exports.” /Turkiye/
