Şentop said: “The evaluations that are made by saying ‘This is a blow to the Assembly’ are completely ignorant and manipulative evaluations.” In fact, the images were examined within the framework of internal regulations, which indicates that it is a false and significant error. The decision in this regard was made in the presidential council. It was found correct in the General Assembly. The voting was then resumed. Is this something that happened for the first time? “Did not say.
The proposal was rejected at midnight Wednesday by opposition votes when AKP and MHP MPs did not participate in the vote. Then Mustafa Şentop, the President of the Grand National Assembly of Turkey, was invited to convene the Presidential Board of the Grand National Assembly of Turkey for the proposal to be voted on again. Subsequently, the motion of the Presidency of the Grand National Assembly of Turkey for the renewal of the vote was put to the vote.

Deputies from the CHP, the IYI party and the HDP group made statements and protested the Speaker of the Parliament, Mustafa Şentop.
“Expressions of ignorance”
Şentop said in a statement today: “There was a problem with the voting of a law in the Grand National Assembly of Turkey. In the vote, the vice president of parliament who presided over the session stated that the bill was rejected because there was not enough acceptance. The vote was repeated yesterday, it was decided to move on to the articles. Some people evaluating this here have statements that what has been done is wrong. All of these are expressions of ignorance. “The president of the assembly has sole and exclusive authority over the operation of the general assembly.
The vice president of the CHP Group, Özgür Özel, criticizing Şentop, who summoned the Presidential Board to the meeting, used the expressions “The president of the Assembly has also become a supporter of the People’s Alliance.”
