| Grand National Assembly of Turkey|
The Deputy Speakers of the Grand National Assembly of Turkey (Turkish: Türkiye Büyük Millet Meclisi Başkanvekilleri) serve on the Speakers Council (Turkish: Başkanlık Divanı) in the Grand National Assembly, the unicameral Parliament of the Turkish Republic. There are four Deputy Speakers, selected according to the parliamentary composition of the incumbent Parliament. Unlike the Speaker of the Grand National Assembly, the Deputy Speakers are not elected by MPs. Instead, each party who has enough representation to nominate a Deputy Speaker can do so, with their nomination automatically becoming official. However, parties can also hold elections within their parliamentary groups to determine their Deputy Speaker.
In the current 26th Parliament of Turkey, there are four parties with representation but only three obtained the right to a Deputy Speaker. The governing Justice and Development Party (AKP) nominated two deputies, namely Ahmet Aydın and Ayşe Nur Bahçekapılı. The Republican People's Party (CHP) nominated Akif Hamzaçebi and the Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) nominated Pervin Buldan. The Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), holding 40 seats, was not eligible to select a deputy.
