Supreme Court says acronym HEDEP cannot be used

The Supreme Court rejected the abbreviation HEDEP used to identify the People's Equality and Democracy Party.

The Green and Left Future Party (Green Left Party) changed its name to People's Equality and Democracy Party (HEDEP).

The Supreme Court rejected the acronym of the party name, HEDEP, on the grounds that it resembled the previously closed People's Democracy Party (HADEP), and requested that the abbreviation HEDEP be changed.

HEDEP executives will meet with lawyers and decide on the options of changing the abbreviation or appealing to the Supreme Court.

HEDEP spokesperson Ayşegül Doğan will make a statement on the issue tomorrow, Friday.
