In shadow of Erdoğan

It does not matter what people think of Arty, you either have to admire him or admit that those against him are no hoper's. I have to admit I do admire him, and would never take up a challenge to play chess with him.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Friction between Erdoğan and Davutoğlu led to speculation the president would have former transport minister Binali Yıldırım challenge Davutoğlu for the chairmanship of the centre-right, Islamist-rooted AKP, party officials said.

But Davutoğlu stood for the leadership unopposed. Davutoğlu also announced that “some exceptions” will be added to a party bylaw which prevents party members from running for Parliament for three consecutive parliamentary terms. He did not elaborate on the exceptions.

"He seems to have scared Davutoğlu into toeing his line by raising the spectre of his man Binali Yıldırım contesting the leadership," said Halil Karaveli, managing editor of policy journal The Turkey Analyst, a policy journal.

In a recent meeting to smooth out differences, Davutoğlu agreed to allow Erdoğan loyalists in executive party positions, a senior party member said.
Erdoğan's son-in-law, as well as Yıldırım and his former lawyer were all named to executive committees on Saturday, while Davutoğlu's allies were conspicuously absent.

Re: In shadow of Erdoğan

İ am not an Erdoğan supporter but feel that we must admit he has done some good things. On a local level we had the AK party and they preformed well. We now have MHP and although they are at last getting their act together they are not as good and as is often the case they have replaced experienced personnel with chums who are not able to perform so we seem to have lots of tea drinking by totally disinterested people in some areas of the Belediye.

Re: In shadow of Erdoğan

Beyazbayan, I know what you mean. I am not an Erdoğan supporter neither, in fact I am not really political other than I have ALWAYS hated Blair.

I admired Thatcher and believe she gave the average Brit the confidence to hold their head high after the shambles of the 3 day week etc., but her ego got the better of her and she went off the rails.

Would I defend her? No, because I wont defend politicians because apart from a very few that I admire (Dennis Skinner, the man not his politics is one) I think most are only in it for what they can get.

Many on here will not understand my post but you don't have to like a guy to admire him. I know Bal and some others would probably hate to be in the same room as him, as is their right. Politics like football is very much a personal thing, which is why you never really know who is right or wrong, you can only agree or disagree, and even then some of their policies must be right.

Shirley and Charlotte for instance have been right many times in the past; Fuat Avni has most certainly been right in the past and what he has said will happen in the lead up to November does not make good reading, I only hope he is wrong this time.
