Pro-Kurdish party says reform package doesn't meet expectations

World Bulletin / News Desk

Turkey's proposed reforms aimed at addressing some Kurdish grievances do not go far enough to advance the peace process with militants, the head of the pro-Kurdish Peace and Democracy Party (BDP) said on Monday.

The package of reforms, including lowering an electoral threshold and allowing for Kudish-language education at private schools, did not meet the BDP's expectations, co-chairwoman Gultan Kisanak told a news conference.

Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan presented the much-anticipated proposals earlier on Monday.
