This week, the Turkish Parliament is tackling a busy agenda across multiple committees and in the general assembly.

The Justice Commission is focusing on the ninth Judicial Reform Package, which seeks to implement substantial changes in the judiciary. At the same time, the Budget and Planning Commission is examining a legislative proposal that includes measures from the savings package.

Protecting teachers

The Turkish Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Commission will prioritize discussions on multiple international agreements this week. Meanwhile, Parliament is set to begin deliberations on the Teacher Profession Law proposal. This initiative aims to address increasing violence against teachers, establish the National Education Academy, abolish written exams for career progression, and introduce sanctions for influential educators.

Tax reforms ahead

Furthermore, it is expected that a new tax package, including minimum corporate tax and minimum income tax applications, will be finalized and submitted to Parliament this week. Discussions on preparations concerning stray dogs may lead ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Party) group leaders to visit opposition parties to discuss this issue. If the proposal is completed, it could be presented to the Presidency of the Assembly this week.

Additionally, a new tax package incorporating minimum corporate tax and minimum income tax measures is slated for finalization and submission to Parliament this week. Discussions on preparations regarding stray dogs may prompt leaders of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Party) to engage with opposition parties. Once finalized, the proposal could be presented to the Presidency of the Assembly later this week.
