Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu called on two opposition parties Friday to back his push to alter Turkey’s constitution, to allow prosecutions of pro-Kurdish lawmakers accused of “terrorist propaganda”.


Lawmakers will decide whether to allow the change before the end of the month, according to a parliamentary source.


The Turkish government submitted a draft proposal to parliament last week that would strip lawmakers of immunity from prosecution, ruling AK Party officials said.
