Pro-Kurdish party vows to be 'nightmare' for Turkey's Erdogan

ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkey's pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) vowed on Tuesday to be President Tayyip Erdogan's "nightmare" if it enters parliament after a June election by blocking his plans for an executive presidency.

Unveiling a leftist election manifesto which reaches beyond its Kurdish grassroots, the HDP also demanded greater rights for women and minorities in Turkey while reaffirming its support for ending a 30-year conflict between the state and Kurdish rebels.
