Gareth Jenkins Quoted in Open Democracy Article on Turkey’s Opposition

June 16, 2016: Gareth Jenkins was quoted in the Open Democracy article The rise and fall of Turkey’s progressive opposition.

“[Demirtaş] tried to take the party into the political mainstream, and to a large extent, by June last year he’d succeeded,” Gareth Jenkins said. “They picked up votes from the west of the country largely as a result of the change in the political landscape brought about by the Gezi Park protests.”
