ANKARA, Turkey – A battle to secure political dominance for another five years is given by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who on Wednesday announced early elections for June 24th.
The “sultan” party predicts in its own poll a victory from the first Sunday. Instead, other polls indicate that the election will be judged in round two.
According to ANT1, polls made before the announcement of early elections predict Erdogan’s first-round victory by 43.2% to 46.4%. And this is the moment the Turkish government spoke on more than 55% on Thursday, based on its own polls, but without giving full details.
As for Erdogan’s political rival, according to opinion polls, Kemal Kilichtaroglu gets 12.7%, with the “cause” of another leader in the kemalist party reaching 24.0%.
As for the big question mark, it is the head of the “Iyi Parti”, Meral Aksener who appears in the polls with a rate of 12.7% to 18.2%. Indeed, if this political and so-called “lykena” faces the “sultan” in the second round, then Erdogan will be able to defeat with a slight difference. There is a poll that the two candidates gather 50.5% and 49.5%, so the Turkish president is trying, perhaps for this reason, to block it with legal leaks from the electoral process.
