#Election2023- The main opposition alliance unveils its government program

In Uncategorized on January 30, 2023 at 23:36

The six-party Nation Alliance has unveiled its ambitious and comprehensive government program covering nine major areas, 75 subtitles with more than 2,000 targets to overhaul the governance system, economic policies, foreign policy, education and social policies for placing Türkiye into the league of high-income countries in the world.

Background by

The 2023 Turkish general election is scheduled to take place on May 14, 2023. [2]

This election will be a tight test of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s rule as he seeks to extend his rule into a third decade[3]

The polls suggest that the election will be closely contested, with many voters expressing anger towards the millions of refugees in Turkey and the deepening economic crisis [4]


Erdogan says Turkish elections to be held on May 14

Turkish president announces the date for the country’s presidential and parliamentary polls.

Politicians all over the world tell voters that the next election in their country will be “the most important one of their lives”; it’s a favored, and well-trodden, get-out-the-vote tactic in the United States and beyond. In 2023, though, there is one country where a claim about an election’s existential importance might really be true: Turkey.

This week, the country’s leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan moved up the date of the forthcoming Turkish presidential and parliamentary votes to May 14, a month earlier than expected, even as the country reels from a spiralling economic crisis and increasing social polarization.

Journalists of Kurdish media outlets: Behind bars for 6 months without indictment

Journalists in Diyarbakır called for justice for their colleagues: “Our friends are taken hostage since June 16 and still there is no indictment prepared. This is because there is no crime and there is no accusation to be made.”

Voters suffering from the president’s terrible economic policies might have finally had enoughCourts in Turkey generally bow to the wishes of the country’s authoritarian president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. This is unsurprising, given his purges of judges and prosecutors during his two decades in power. So last week’s court verdict sentencing Istanbul’s popular opposition mayor, Ekrem İmamoğlu, to more than two years in jail and banning him from public life followed a familiar pattern.
