Former Minister of Justice Hikmet Sami Turkmade the following assessment:

“There is currently no situation that requires them to resign. According to the constitution, both the ministry and the deputy are incompatible, but the incompatibility begins with the oath of the deputy. In other words, this is a process that starts from the moment the deputy takes the oath. If they take an oath at the opening of the Assembly, their ministry will be dropped.”
