On September 30, 2013, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan announced his government’s long-awaited reform or “democratization” package. In Turkey’s highly polarized political atmosphere, responses ranged from describing the package as a historical victory for democracy that will finally free Turkey from heavy chains imposed upon it for decades, to an electoral ploy designed to polish the country’s badly damaged image as a result of the Gezi Park incidents, with no substantial improvements in democratic standards. As often is the case, the truth lies in the middle. While some of the reforms promised by Erdoğan represent significant democratic improvements, there are many problem areas not mentioned or insufficiently treated. The best overall evaluation would likely be to repeat a slogan often used by liberal democrats during the referendum campaign on the constitutional amendments of 2010: “Not enough, but yes” (Yetmez ama evet).
