    It is high time that Turkey update its constitution in a way that reflects the whole country and society, EU Enlargement Commissioner Olli Rehn's spokesperson, Krisztina Nagy, said Thursday.

    Turkey must implement a comprehensive and stable political reform program, Nagy told the Anatolian Agency adding that, "At the same time, the implementation of the judicial reform and development of the rights of unions must take place in Turkey."


    Nagy said Turkey's accession road to the EU was a long and difficult one and that the reform process was just as important as joining the EU itself.


    "The EU has a clear stance on Turkish membership. Turkey may become a member of the EU if it meets the necessary conditions and fulfills its duties," she also said.


    Nagy reminded that eight chapters have so far been opened in negotiations with Turkey, and that new chapters would be opened for negotiation in December.


    "The developments in Turkey are being evaluated by the EU Commission in annual observation reports. We will make public our latest report on November 5," she added.
