The speech took place at a weekly parliamentary party meeting of HDP after greeting party members.
Addressing the members from the podium, Demirtaş denying allegations the negotiations between his party and ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) over switching Turkey to a presidential system.
He also added that they would never have such dirty negotiations with AKP.
“Mr Erdoğan,” he continued, “as long as HDP exists, as long as HDP members will breath, you won’t be the president.”
Demirtaş’s last words were as follows: “Mr Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, we won’t let you elected as the President, we won’t let you elected as the President, we won’t let you elected as the President!”
