David McAllister MEP: The European Parliament will not observe the general elections in Türkiye

Statement by leading MEPs on the general elections in Türkiye on 14 May 2023.

“General elections will take place in Türkiye on 14 May 2023.

The European Parliament will not observe this electoral process, and consequently will neither comment on the process nor on the results that will be announced afterwards. No individual Member of the European Parliament has been mandated to observe or comment on this electoral process on its behalf.

Therefore, should any Member of the European Parliament decide to observe these elections, she/he would do so on her/his own initiative and should under no circumstances through any statement or action, associate her/his participation with the European Parliament.”

The statement is co-signed by:

David McAllister (EPP, Germany), Chair of the Committee on Foreign Affairs, Co-Chair of the European Parliament’s Democracy Support and Election Coordination Group (DEG);

Tomas Tobé, Chair of the Committee on Development, Co-Chair of the European Parliament’s Democracy Support and Election Coordination Group.
