About Workers' Party

Workers' Party (Turkish: İşçi Partisi) is political party in Turkey led by Doğu Perinçek. İP has its roots in the Revolutionary Workers and Peasants Party of Turkey (TİİKP), Workers and Peasants Party of Turkey (TİKP) and Socialist Party (Turkey). They are known as "Aydınlıkçılar" (Enlighteners) due to their periodical "Aydınlık" (Enlightenment). The İP traditionally combined Maoist rhetoric with a hardline Kemalism. Although they accept scientific socialism as their main ideology, they have a more nationalistic ideology than other left-wing parties in Turkey. Their revolution strategy is based on "National Democratic Revolution", which is close to Mao Zedong's "New Democratic Revolution". İP supports Stalin's "socialism in one country" thesis, rather than Mirsäyet Soltanğäliev's "national communism" thesis. Such that, Mehmet Bedri Gültekin, deputy chairman of the party, wrote a book on Soltanğäliev's counter-revolutionary role. They admire the founder of the Turkish republic, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk (who is considered a "left-wing bourgois democratic revolutionary" by most of the party members) as much as they admire Marxist revolutionary leaders such as Lenin, Mao Zedong and Fidel
