Pro-Kurdish Party Vows to Be 'nightmare' for Turkey's Erdogan

Turkey's pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) vowed on Tuesday to be President Tayyip Erdogan's "nightmare" if it enters parliament after a June election by blocking his plans for an executive presidency.
Unveiling a leftist election manifesto which reaches beyond its Kurdish grassroots, the HDP also demanded greater rights for women and minorities in Turkey while reaffirming its support for ending a 30-year conflict between the state and Kurdish rebels.
Joint HDP leader Figen Yuksekdag told a meeting in Istanbul, to applause from party supporters, "Our manifesto is the sultan's nightmare and the dream of all the peoples of Turkey. They have started to see nightmares and they will see a lot more."
