ANKARA - Turkey’s parliament speaker on Thursday called on political parties to draft a new democratic constitution without delay, warning that failure to do so would tarnish the country’s image. Turkey’s political parties in the 550-seat parliament have been working since 2011 to replace the current constitution which was drafted by the powerful army after the 1980 military coup. But little progress has been reported. “Turkey urgently needs a new constitution. Efforts to write a new charter should not be delayed further,” speaker Cemil Cicek told reporters.
