Just as the political structure of any country can have a positive or negative impact on the democratization process; The opposition bloc, which includes political parties and currents, civic institutions, etc., has a dual positive and negative impact on this process. In Turkey, the influence of the opposition bloc in the democratization process has been relatively positive. But in the last two decades, with the rise of the Islamist Justice and Development Party to power, the Turkish opposition bloc has adopted changing approaches to the political structure, which has had a more negative impact on democratization.
In the current research, focusing on the performance of the "People's Republic" party as the largest opposition party, three main approaches of Turkish parties towards the political structure have been introduced and evaluated. Achieving this goal is pursued in the form of historical institutional approach and using library and digital resources. Methodologically, the current research is based on the "process tracing" method.
The Turkish opposition bloc, especially the political parties, although they are considered to be among the main indicators of democracy, it seems that during the last two decades, they adopted undemocratic political procedures such as "appeasement procedure", "supportive procedure" and " "deviant procedure" have become one of the main obstacles to strengthening and consolidating the democratization process.
