Venice Commission: New Opinion on Emergency Decree Laws (OHAL)

 

Turkish authorities have interpreted these extraordinary powers too extensively

The Venice Commission echoes criticism, finding “particularly worrying” that emergency legislation permits central authorities to appoint unelected mayors, vice-mayors and members of local councils, and exercise – without judicial oversight – discretionary control over the functioning of the concerned municipalities.

Local authorities are one of the main foundations of a democratic society.

the Venice Commission calls on Turkish authorities to take the following steps:

☪⚖ To repeal provisions introduced by the Decree Law N° 674 which are not strictly necessitated by the state of emergency, in particular concerning the rules enabling the filling of vacancies in the positions of mayor, vice-mayor, local council member, by the way of appointments;

☪⚖ To ensure that the application of the rules introduced by the Decree Law N° 674 is limited to the duration of the state of emergency, and that any permanent measures affecting local democracy are taken following the ordinary laws and procedures, after proper parliamentary debate;

☪⚖ To introduce provisions for adequate judicial review of the measures taken by the governorship in municipalities where special powers are instituted in their respect in the context of the fight against terrorism;

☪⚖ To provide adequate rules and framework for the reinstatement of suspended/dismissed local representatives in case the terrorism-related charges do not lead to a criminal conviction.

The Pursuit of Gender Equality!

Gender inequalities persist in all areas of social and economic life and across countries. Young women in OECD countries generally obtain more years of schooling than young men, but women are less likely than men to engage in paid work. Gaps widen with age, as motherhood typically has marked negative effects on gender pay gaps and career advancement. Women are also less likely to be entrepreneurs, and are underrepresented in private and public leadership positions.

The 2013 and 2015 OECD Gender Recommendations provide guidance on how to advance gender equality in education, employment, entrepreneurship and public life. Topics include violence against women, gender budgeting, the unequal sharing of unpaid work, labour market outcomes and migration. The book presents a range of indicators illustrating gender gaps. It also discusses recent policy initiatives, such as pay transparency measures to reduce gender wage gaps and policy reform aimed at fathers taking parental leave. Overall, progress has been slow and there is a strong need for further policy action to close gender gaps in education, employment, entrepreneurship and public life.

Şiir Pazarı : Ab-ı Derya…

 

Bazen durgun, bazen fırtınalı…

Daldı gözlerim
Denizin o tirşe ve hareli gözlerine
Derken Poseydon’la beraber
Kaldırıp başlarımızı güneşin
Gülkokusu bacaklarına baktık

Derken martılar geçti
Sıyırarak suları yanımızdan
Karşı sahilde akşamla yanan
Beş pare cama gömmek için bizi…
