A representative of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation participated in the fourth convention of Turkey’s People’s Democratic Party (HDP) being held in Ankara, which was chaired by among others Garo Paylan, an Armenian member of the Turkish parliament who represents the HDP.

ARF representative Khajag Meguerdichian was among 100 international participants and thousands of guests, with convention organizers estimating a crowd of 30,000 party members and supporters. The HDP said that thousands more were not allowed to attend due to the crackdown by the government of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Meguerdichian also represented the ARF at HDP’s previous convention.

Pervin Buldan and Mithat Sancar were elected unanimously as the party’s co-chairs along with the Party Assembly with 836 votes from the 1018 delegates that participated.

    A big thank you to HDP to all of Mr Paylan’s friends but I must not forget Erdoran who respected the Party by committing this historic step to tolerate the presence of our Party, deep thanks to this comrade. I am houzvadz to know that this type of historical awards is bestowed on our Party which has been fighting for more than a hundred years for our rights and dignity not to mention that Turkey is beginning to admit the usefulness of the Tachnags to restore its national image to the ratings of Turkish intellectuals and citizens. Thank you all
