Constitutional Reforms in Turkey


In 2011, Turkey decided to make reforms in its constitution to mark a shift from being a committed secular state to bend towards being a pro-Islamist state. This is done under the leadership of the AK Party. The proposed constitutional reforms include:

  1. Repeal of ban on women wearing headscarves
  2. To make the defence forces accountable to civilian government and subjecting the army to prosecution for staging any military coup
  3. To restrict the powers of Judiciary which often acted as a check on the powers of Parliament
  4. Measures to strengthen individual freedom.
