Legal Reform Slated for Turkey

InternationalThe coup that plagued Turkey spurred policy-makers to revisit the constitution, specifically Article 35, which has been used to justify the actions from the police. Now, a reform is slated to change the legal landscape of the country in order to prevent any further coup.

The government of Turkey is planning to overhaul Article 35. The change could prevent the military forces of the country from getting involved in domestic affairs, and make them answer only for any foreign threats to Turkey.

The article in question is said to provide justification for the actions of coup instigators.
However, the change would only create a symbolic change and not actually prevent any coup. Rebellions are par for the course of any government and Turkey is not free from such events. Coups could still happen even without Article 35. The change, however, can mean a direction towards democracy and progress.
