Race against the clock for Turkish votes. President Recep Erdogan and his opponent are holding parallel rallies today. If Erdogan hopes to win a third term, Kemal Kilicdaroglu wants to end 20 years of Erdogan deciding Turkey’s destinies.
We are only two days away from a crucial moment for the future of Europe and NATO. The final round of elections in Turkey takes place on Sunday, and the two candidates, who are separated by only a few percentage points, have already brought out their most powerful weapons. They include fake videos or promises that migrants will be removed from Turkey.
The incumbent Turkish president ranked first after the first round of the presidential elections – with 49.5% of the votes cast.
Kemal Kilicdaroglu – who obtained 44.9% of the votes cast in the first round – tightened his tone on the issue of refugees and terrorism, with the aim of recovering from the ground. He was supported in the first round of the Turkish presidential elections by the main pro-Kurdish party, HDP, which the Turkish authorities accuse of having links with the PKK.
The acting head of the Turkish state and his camp are running a campaign in which they daily resume these accusations – regarding the support of terrorism and complicity with the PKK – against Kemal Kilicdaroglu.
