Türkiye Büyük Millet Meclisi'ne 22. ve 23. dönem İstanbul milletvekili olarak görev yapan Kılıçdaroğlu, şu anda Cumhuriyet Halk Partisi'nin genel başkanlığını yapmaktadır.

 

Siyaset hayatı

11 Ocak 1999′da SSK Genel Müdürlüğü′nden emekli olan Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu′nun adı "DSP′nin yıldızları" arasında anıldı ve 18 Nisan 1999′da yapılacak genel seçimlerde Demokratik Sol Parti′den milletvekili adayı olacağı belirtildi ancak Kılıçdaroğlu 1999 seçimlerinde milletvekili adayı olmadı.

 

Kılıçdaroğlu, 22 Eylül 2008 tarihinde düzenlediği bir basın toplantısında, "Baron" olarak adlandırdığı Adalet ve Kalkınma Partisi Genel Başkan Yardımcısı Dengir Mir Mehmet Fırat hakkında çeşitli iddialar ortaya attı. Fırat'ın en büyük ortağı olduğu Menas adlı şirketin ürünlerini yurtdışına götüren tırda 89 kilogram eroin yakalandığını ve Menas'ın hayali ihracat yaptığını iddia eden Kılıçdaroğlu, bu kez de 25 Eylül günü gazeteci Uğur Dündar tarafından yönetilen tartışmada Dengir Mir Mehmet Fırat ile biraraya geldi. Tartışma, televizyondan canlı olarak yayınlandı. Fırat, sağlık durumunu gerekçe göstererek 8 Kasım 2008 tarihinde istifa etti.

 

İstanbul milletvekili olan Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, 2009 yerel seçimlerine Cumhuriyet Halk Partisi'nin İstanbul Büyükşehir Belediye Başkan adayı olarak katıldı. Seçimi Adalet ve Kalkınma Partisi adayı Kadir Topbaş kazandı; ancak Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu elde ettiği %36.80'lik oy yüzdesiyle, partisinin İstanbul Büyükşehir Belediye başkanlığı için aldığı oy oranını 2004 Yerel Seçimleri'nin % 25'in üstünde bir oranda artırdı.

Olağan CHP Kurultayı'nda, 1249 delegeden 1200'ünün imzasını alarak  ve tek aday olarak girdiği kurultayda geçerli 1189 oyun tamamını alarak CHP'nin 7. genel başkanı olmuştur.

ENG:

 

Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu (born 17 December 1948) is a Turkish social democrat politician. He is currently leader of the Republican People's Party (CHP) and Leader of the Main Opposition in Turkey. He has been the Member of Parliament for İstanbul since 2002.  He was nominated by the CHP as candidate for Mayor of Istanbul in the 2009 local elections, in which he gained 36.8% of all votes. He is considered likely to breathe new life into the CHP. 

 

Origin

He was born on December 17, 1948 in Ballıca village of Nazimiye district in Tunceli Province, eastern Turkey to Kamer, a clerk-recorder of deeds and his wife Yemuş. He was the fourth of seven children. His father was among thousands of exiled Alevis following the failed Dersim Rebellion. The family belonged to the Cebeligiller clan of the Kureyşan tribe. There are some claims about his ethnicity; some sources mention that he has Kurdish, Zaza origin, but he said his roots have come from Turkmen. His father changed their family name in the 1950s from originally Karabulut to Kılıçdaroğlu since all the people in the village they lived in had the same family name. In July 2011, he said "I always refused to do politics on ethnic identities and religion. I am an Alevi. Since when is it a crime to be Alevi in this country?".

 

Professional career

After university, Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu entered the Ministry of Finance as a junior account specialist in 1971. He was later promoted to accountant and was sent to France for additional professional training. In 1983, he was appointed deputy director general of the Revenues Department in the same ministry. At that time he worked closely with Prime Minister Turgut Özal. In 1991, Kılıçdaroğlu became director-general of the Social Security Organization for Artisans and Self-Employed (Bağ-Kur). The following year he was appointed director-general of the Social Security Organization (SSK). In 1994, Kılıçdaroğlu was named "Civil Servant of the Year" by the weekly periodical Ekonomik Trend. Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu retired from the Social Security Organization in January 1999. Kılıçdaroğlu taught at the Hacettepe University and chaired the Specialized Commission on the Informal Economy within the framework of the preparation of the Eighth Five-Year Development Plan. He also acted as a member of the Executive Board of İş Bank.

 

Political career

During his chairmanship of Social Security Organization, he was invited by the leader of the CHP, Deniz Baykal, to join his party. He accepted the invitation. Following the 2002 general election, he entered the parliament as a deputy from Istanbul. In the 2007 general election, he was re-elected to parliament. He became deputy speaker of his party's parliamentary group. Long-time leader of the CHP, Deniz Baykal, resigned on May 10, 2010 following a video tape scandal. Kılıçdaroğlu announced his candidacy for the position on May 17, five days before an upcoming party convention. According to reports, the party was divided over the leadership issue, with its Central Executive Board insisting that Baykal retake the position. But after Kılıçdaroğlu received the support of 77 of his party's 81 provincial chairpersons, Baykal decided not to run for re-election. For a candidacy to become official, CHP by-laws require the support of 20% of convention delegates. At the party convention, which started on May 22, 2010, Kılıçdaroğlu's candidacy received the signatures of 1,246 out of the 1,250 delegates, which set a new record for the CHP.
