Erdogans election

You may be interested in the following, taken from "The Week"

Erdogan's challenger. A right-wing Turkish politician known as "the She Wolf" has emerged as the main threat to President Erdogan in his bid for re-election next month. A former interior minister, Meral Aksener, 61, has promised to restore the democratic rights Erdogan has eroded and re-engage with the West if she is elected. A nationalist and a practising but non-veil wearing Muslim, she hopes that her lyi (good) Party, an alliance of hard and centre right politicians formed last year, will appeal to disillusioned Erdogan voters.The first woman to stand for the presidency, Aksener is considered a formidable political operator: Erdogan's decision to call the snap election is thought to stem from anxiety about her growing popularity. However, to have a chance of success, Aksener must overcome Erdogan's control of the media - reinforced last week by the jailing of 14 opposition journalists.


I wish this intelligent and brave woman well !

This looks like a vote winner but no explanation of how it will be funded unless there a tax increases on foreigner residents as a Nationalist party is more likely to target foreigners instead of Turkish Nationals

Re: Erdogans election

Erdogan said in an off the cuf remark ... "Tamam" in a speech in Parliment

"If one day our nation says 'enough, (Tamam) then I will step aside,"

it seems to have backfired on hitting twitter "Tamam" hashtag swept across Turkish language Twitter and then became a global trending topic. with people saying OK TAMAN ... as in go then ...Even one of the Candidates tweeted "Time is up. Enough!" "TAMAM" tweeted Muharrem Ince.
