ANKARA - Turkey’s new constitution will reduce the political influence of the once-powerful military in order to steer the EU-hopeful country more on the path of democracy, a parliamentary source said Friday. The army, considered the self-appointed guardian of Turkish secularism, has intervened in politics since 1960 and has staged four coups. Since coming to power in 2002, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s government has taken steps to curb the power of the military. “There is an agreement among the four parties who write the new charter. I think there will be no divergence on this subject because the objective is to achieve a civilian and more democratic constitution,” the source said.
