As the Imrali process is being discussed these days, Turkey's ruling party commissioned a survey about the process. 95 percent of respondents answered the question “Do you believe that the Turkish and Kurdish peoples will be able to live together after this?” with a “yes” response.
According to Hurriyet newspaper, with the start of the Imrali process, the AK Party commissioned its second public survey.
Among the 5 thousand 5 hundred people who participated in the survey from 26 cities, 51 percent said that they support discussions with Abdullah Ocalan, the jailed PKK leader, in resolving the terror problem. The percentage of participants who said “Meetings can also be had with Kandil,” referring to the PKK leaders in the Qandil Mountains along the Iran-Iraq border, were 40 percent. The number of individuals viewing the events in the region as “terror problems” is also rapidly rising.
It was commented that in surveys conducted in previous years the exact opposite of these rates had been found, and that the outlook on the problem had changed with the steps which have been taken.
The report indicated that in Prime Minister Erdogan’s meeting with his Chiefs of Staff regarding the Imrali process, the language and approaches of the Peace and Democracy Party (BDP) during the last period were assessed.Last Mod: 22 Şubat 2013, 11:24
