The Republican People’s Party

This contribution provides a historical review of the Republican Peoples Party (CHP), the oldest party of the Turkish Republic. In the last decade, the CHP failed to find a way of restructuring its ideology, support bases and organizational structure in an era of dramatic international, national, and local change. This failure lead to dramatic vote loss, resulting in fewer positions to share among supporters and creating a vicious circle resulting in more losses in vote.
