Turkey’s Constitutional Court has temporarily blocked the Peoples’ Democratic Party’s access to Treasury funds as part of an ongoing effort to shut down the second-largest opposition party in the country. The pro-Kurdish party said the decision aims to hinder a just and democratic election process.
