#Turkey : `Heated All Night Debate’ `Approves Law’ to give `more `Power to Government’ to Appoint Judges and Prosecutors ”

#AceWorldNews says after a night of heated debate and a brawl that left one MP hospitalized, Turkey’s parliament on Saturday passed a law that gives the government more power to appoint judges and prosecutors.

The debate focused on the Higher Council of Judges and Prosecutors (HSYK), the body responsible for appointing members of the judiciary.

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan blames the influential US-based cleric Fethullah Gulen – who has built up quiet influence in the police and judiciary – for stirring up a corruption investigation he sees as being used to unseat him.

The opposition party CHP said on Thursday that it would appeal the bill to the Constitutional Court if it was approved in parliament.
