Turkish elections

There is a headline article in today's Sunday Express (page 42)on the Turkish elections.
Apparently there a lot of Turkish people who resent the number of foreigners who have bought property in Turkey. The mayor of Didim is quoted in the article and the impression given is that the number of British who have bought in Didim, has had a detrimental effect on the area.

Do you think that the foreign property owners have anything to fear if the nationalists get into power or increase their power base in the Turkish parliament?

Re: Turkish elections

i dont think there is anything to 'fear' from the number of houses being bought...
however i would say it pays to fit in with Turkish culture rather than try to make a 'little britain ' out of places like Altınkum...which is becoming resented by conservative Turks.

İ remember when there was an influx in the number of English people who bought holiday homes in Wales..and then wanted to recreate England there....they caused a lot of disharmony and resentment in different places.
This however is not Wales!..

Re: Turkish elections

I think the same thing happened in Brittany too. There was talk a year or so ago that holiday homes were being vandalised as Brits were pushing up the prices so the French locals could not afford to buy. Not sure if there is any trouble now though.

Re: Turkish elections

The Turks see a market and exploit it... hence British restaurants..prices etc...It is inevitable in this ecomomy to not accomodate what tourists want. Then they complain that Turkey is turning it into little britain..mini Ireland etc etc.Compared with the size of Turkey the amount of this incursion is realatively small...
In a election campaign what is said is to attract voters...we all know that, play to fears and phobias is what politicians do best
Plus inm places like ALanya once the season shuts down so does "Yabanci" shops etc. You then find yourself living in the lovely friendly culture you came here for.
Most of the owners I have met ..love the culture and the people and do not want that to change.. it is the Turkish business man who offers the changes.Even in places like Mahmutlar where there is an extrodinary amount of Irish have bought house and buisnesses ...they enjoy the Turkish element of the area and help promote it.

Most who know me know how much I suffer in the tourism months given where my home is... which was a lovely Turkish sok...11yrs ago. It now has 7 restaurants and 5 shops...all aimed at the scandinavians as they use the street as a direct route from thier hotels to the beach...It has a busy frenetic atmosphere but ohh the noise from tourist having a great time and the music...drives me insane. I will move this year but only because my landlord wants my flat as he will turn his into another shop next year....


Shirley..where you at?? Not caught you to chat for some time..I got my purple finger today...voted for the first time...felt really strange..but good.
