French Muslim party to contest by-election
A senior member of France's Turkish-Muslim Equality and Justice Party (PEJ) has told Anadolu Agency that an upcoming May 22 by-election will be used as preparation for the country's general election in 2017.
PEJ chair Sakir Colak said a party was needed to defend the rights of Muslims exposed to discrimination in France.
The PEJ – founded by a Turkish and Muslim initiative – will contest the by-election called after the resignation of Socialist Party deputy, Armand Jung.
