One of the two leaders of the third party of Turkey, Figen Yüksekdag of the HDP (people’s Democratic y), is officially out of the parliament.

Tuesday, it was announced that a court in appeal her sentence for the fueling of violence and for support to a terrorist organization, has maintained and this will void her membership of the house of representatives.

Yüksekdag is already three months. The other co-chairman of the HDP, Selahattin Demirtas, is already three months caught.

The government of president Erdogan accuses the HDP assumes an extension of the terrorist PKK (Kurdish workers y). The left-wing HDP denies certainly the band with the PKK.
