Habertürk columnist Fatih Altaylı carried the claim that a name other than CHP Chairman Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu could be on the agenda regarding the presidential candidate of the ‘six table’.
Altaylı, in today’s article People from within the CHP say, “Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu suits this seat very well, but he has another name on his mind. After fully understanding the atmosphere at the table, he will present this candidate that no one will object to at the table.” said he said.
The relevant section in Fatih Altaylı’s article is as follows:
“It is no secret that a group within the CHP, close to the Chairman, wants Kılıçdaroğlu to be a candidate.
People I trust, who met with Kılıçdaroğlu, said, “Kemal Bey wants to be a candidate. They look determined.”
However, names from within the CHP said, “Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu suits this seat very well, but he has another name in mind. Once they fully understand the mood at the table, they will present this candidate that no one at the table will object to.”
CHP Chairman Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, in the joint broadcast he attended today in Elazig, was asked “Can there be a surprise candidate in the elections” on the question, “No, no room for surprises” had used the words.
