HDP’s Baluken speaks of failure to communicate peace to society
An important figure in the solution process, ─░dris Baluken replied from prison to Cumhuriyet’s questions. Saying they had attached excessive meaning to support in the region of 70-80% for the peace process in polls, Baluken said they had been wanting when it came to strengthening social support for the demand for peace. Baluken stressed that the result the HDP obtained on 24 June has shown that fear cannot devour hope. Noting that he was not at odds with his party but a historic responsibility was incumbent on the HDP, Baluken said with reference to the local elections that, rather than winning municipalities, winning democracy must be set as the goal.
