Constitutional Court to Review Foundations Law

At the behest of a petition for review filed by CHP on Monday, the Constitutional Court has decided to review changes recently made to the Foundations Law. The recent legislative push to address problems have been long-cited by the European Union and Turkey's minorities as violations of basic political rights. Many members of minority groups feel the new laws do not go far enough.

CHP will likely again fall subject to criticism that it has turned to Turkey's judiciary to reverse law passed by significant majorities in the parliament. MHP is also in support of the petition.
