Sözcü - Turkey | Thursday, May 28, 2015

The people of Turkey will send Erdoğan away

According to an opinion poll put out on Wednesday Turkey's ruling party the AKP will win just 38.2 percent of the vote in the election on June 7. In 2011 it secured 49.8 percent. In this way the Turks will put an end to President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's bid to establish a presidential system, the opposition daily Sözcü writes: "This will be a fateful election. Money, the entire power of the government, theft carried out under the pretence of piety, brazen lies and inequality is on one side, and the profound collective conscience of the people is on the other. … In reality the election will decide between those who want Tayyip Erdoğan to be a president with all the powers in his hand and those who find this dangerous and want the parliamentary system and the separation of powers to continue. The voters will decide. The people brought Erdoğan to power. And the people will send him away."
