Voice of the People Party (HAS Party) leader Numan Kurtulmuş said in Erzurum on Saturday that his party has decided to merge with the Justice and Development Party (AK Party).
Kurtulmuş stated that the AK Party offered a merger with the HAS Party during a meeting with Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan a month ago. Kurtulmuş was asked if the HAS Party would be disbanded following the merger. Kurtulmuş responded, “The HAS Party will decide this on its own.”
Kurtulmuş founded the HAS Party in late 2010 after resigning from the Felicity Party (SP) due to a long-standing intraparty rift. Erdoğan's AK Party appeals to the same constituent base as the HAS Party and both emerged from the same predecessor of the SP, the Virtue Party (FP).
