The Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) has announced that four deputies from the party, Yusuf Halaçoğlu, Sinan Oğan, Nuri Okutan and İsmail Ok, have been referred to the party’s disciplinary board for expulsion because they disagree with party policy regarding an upcoming referendum.

Turkey will hold a referendum on April 16 on a constitutional reform package that will bring an executive presidency to Turkey.

The ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), backed by the MHP, pushed through the legislation that President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan says will bring the strong leadership needed to prevent a return of the fragile coalition governments of the past.

MHP leader Devlet Bahçeli publicly announces his support for the reforms.

A statement from the party on  Monday said the four deputies have been referred to the party’s disciplinary board because they made statements against party policy and decisions regarding the referendum.

Those deputies have announced that they will vote against the reforms.
