Describing the rally ,which brought at least 300,000 people onto the streets of Ankara to demonstrate against any undermining of Turkeys secular state, as a democratic procedure, Sener said the rally should make everyone ask what the demonstrators wanted.
Differences of opinion are natural, he said. Had everybody been the same there would have been no progress.
Demonstrations, protest meetings were an effective way of conveying the opinions of the masses to the officials, Sener said during a ceremony at an Istanbul school.
Thus a big demonstration was held in Ankara on Saturday, he said.
Hundreds of thousands of people from different cities in Turkey attended this demonstration. The press regarded it as the greatest meeting in the history of the Republic of Turkey.
It really was a great meeting. At this meeting demonstrators stressed the fundamental principles of our republic, especially secularism. Thus they communicated their sensitivities to officials regarding the presidential election ahead.
