Constitutional Revision - Development Progress - Turkey
The 1982 Constitution of Turkey has been amended 16 times since its inauguration. The latest amendment was made through the referendum on September 12, 2010 in a tense political atmosphere. As a result, almost half of the 1982 Constitution was rewritten. Now, it is highly legitimate to ask the following questions: Does Turkey still need to revise its constitution, or even to make an entirely new one? Are the amendments introduced so far insufficient for Turkey‟s future progress?
