National Struggle Party

Political party in Turkey

The National Struggle Party (Turkish: Milli Mücadele Partisi, abbreviated MMP) is a Nationalist political party in Turkey. It was formed by Ahmet Kaya, whose Turkish nationalism has been contrasted with the Kurdish nationalist singer of the same name.[2] The MMP's founders claim that it is neither a rival nor an enemy of any other established party, even though its ideology is close to the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP). The pro-Justice and Development Party (AKP) newspaper Yeni Akit accused the party of being founded by supporters of Fethullah Gülen after failing to gain influence within the MHP.[3] However, the party also advocates Kemalism, which is in contrast with the Islamist political agenda of Gülen.[4] The party currently has no representation in the Grand National Assembly and is yet to contest any elections.
