Campaigners for the Halkların Demokratik Partisi (HDP) watch from behind fences as the party leader Selhatin Denirtas speaks to a rally in Kadakoy on the Anatolian side of Istanbul a week to go before Turkey goes to the polls for a presidential election. The HDP Party (Halkların Demokratik Partisi (HDP), is a pro-minority rights and feminist left political party, acting as the fraternal party to pro-Kurdish Peace and Democracy Party (BDP). HDP is also known to the Turkish public with its strong support for LGBT rights and has introduced a 10% quota for LGBT individuals in its electoral lists; the party also enforces its strong pro-gender equality stance with a similar 50% quota for women).
