Via News.am, on the nominees of the Kurdish party, Peace and Democracy, for the upcoming Turkish parliamentary elections:
The Kurdish Party will support 61 independent candidates in 39 provinces of Turkey.
The main theme of the short article is that the party reneged on an earlier plan to nominate some Armenian candidates. (It is, after all, a Kurdish party.)
On the unusual role of independents in an otherwise party-list system with a very high threshold, see the discussion here of the previous election.
(In searching for that entry, I was surprised to see just how many plantings there are on Turkey. By a quick count, this is #11, with most of the others being from the 2007 elections and the adoption that year of a premier-presidential system.)
