Turkish Parliament

In Ankara, the opening session of the national parliament - with oathtaking of the lawmakers - will probably happen on tuesday 28.6.2011 without 9 elected lawmakers:

from the CHP: Mustafa Balbay and Mehmet Haberal
from MHP: Engin Alan
from the independents: Gülşer Yıldırım, İbrahim Ayhan, Selma Irmak, Kemal Aktaş, Faysal Sarıyıldız, Hatip Dicle

Eight of them are in prison (mostly without any perspective to an approaching process), Dicle has been stripped of his deputyship due to a recently upheld terror conviction.

From the ruling party nobody is in prison.
