Democratic Left Party (DSP) Chairman Önder Aksakal and his delegation commemorated Rahşan Ecevit, the wife of the late Bülent Ecevit, the Honorary Chairman of the DSP, and the founding Chairman of the Democratic Left Party, at his grave in the State Cemetery on the 3rd anniversary of his death.

The speech of DSP Chairman Aksakal during the commemoration is as follows:

“Today, on the third anniversary of his passing, we have gathered in the spiritual presence of DSP's founding Chairman and Honorary Chairman Bülent Ecevit to commemorate Rahşan Ecevit, his beloved wife, with respect and mercy. In 3, 1946 years ago, she and Bülent Ecevit merged their lives, they laid their heads on the same pillow for 77 years, and 60 years ago we brought them together again in their eternal resting place.

As the Democratic Left Party family, I would like to express my gratitude to all the state dignitaries, especially our Honorable President, who showed their will for Rahşan Ecevit's will. As one of the female politicians who left their mark on Turkish politics, Rahşan Ecevit passed away at the age of 97, may God have mercy on her.

Rahşan Ecevit, who founded the Peasant Association in 1970, essentially laid the social foundations of Democratic Left politics. With these works, they provided information and training to the villagers and those living in the slums, together with their assistant experts, and contributed to making the producers earn more and making life easier for the consumers in the cities.

After the bans were lifted, he transferred the Chairmanship to Bülent Ecevit and assumed the Vice Chairmanship in charge of Organizing within the party with the experience he gained from the Peasant Associations. They lived through politically troubling and difficult times. They have lived a whole life kneaded with these hardships.

Rahşan Ecevit, who never left his wife's side until his death, was talked about with his relationship with Bülent Ecevit, and Bülent Ecevit described his love for his wife in the lines he wrote in his poem "Hand in hand, we grew love". May your soul rest in peace, Rahşan Ecevit, may your soul rest in peace, my President, may your place be heaven. May your souls find peace in the same grave with your dear wife and Honorary Chairman Bülent Ecevit.”
