A Wind of Change in Turkish Politics?
Turkey’s President Erdoğan is entering his third decade in power after winning a tightly contested run-off election. Hürcan Aslı Aksoy and Salim Çevik discuss how he managed to secure a third term, why the opposition failed to unseat the president and what the election results mean for Ankara’s relations with NATO allies, the EU and Germany.
As Turkey heads to the polls on May 14, many fear that President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan might not respect the election results if he is defeated. Aslı Aksoy and Salim Çevik argue that a violent rejection of the transfer of power is unlikely.
Turkey will soon vote for a new parliament and president. With the electoral process lacking in fairness, there are fears of fraud. Aslı Aksoy and Salim Çevik explain why this is unlikely.
On May 14, Turkish voters head to the polls. President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is running for reelection. Six opposition parties have united to compete against him. Hürcan Aslı Aksoy and Salim Çevik are taking a look at the candidates, the prospect of political change and how the results could impact relations between Turkey and the EU. Host: Esme Nicholson.
Centralisation of power has eroded state capacity
As Turkey mends its ties with the UAE, Israel, Egypt and Saudi Arabia, many have started to think that Syria might be the next on the list. Will Turkey mend its ties with the Assad regime ?
In his victory speech, the 69-year-old newly re-elected President Erdogan pledged to unite a country deeply divided. Claiming 52.1 per cent of the run-off vote, Erdogan emerged victorious yet again.
