As for the "democratic Republic" heading, the United Communist Party of Turkey (TBKP) was dissolved in 1991 for the sole reason that its name contained the word "communist." Nevertheless, after assessing the case in 1998, the Constitutional Court did not find that the party's desire to come to power based on the class system was against democratic principles and with an apt decision, refused the demand for closure.
[A]lthough the TBKP refers in its programme (228) to the Kurdish `people' and `nation' and Kurdish `citizens', it neither describes them as a `minority' (229) nor makes any claim--other than for recognition of their existence--for them to enjoy special treatment or rights, still less a right to secede from the rest of the Turkish population.
