I went back to listen to the video and may have miss heard something by the interviewer. But around 30:00 she does says something about Turkey may have to “leave” the S-400 program.Erdogan has been in power for a long time. Today he has won the elections yet again. It goes to show that the majority of Turkish voters trust his decisions. Soon the Treaty of Lausanne won't apply anymore and Turkey will be fully exploiting the natural resources. Erdogan understands the game. No doubt that the Western world and seculars hate the Erdogan for being independent. Something Imran Khan was punished for and removed from power. Nevertheless, Turkey has a bright future ahead. Independent foreign policy is the way forward.
Just don't ban me from this topic. Please... I know I am conveying my thoughts and you don't like them. Please...
In Pakistan the military would have sided with the opposition just like they did very recently.
You say there is talk. Can you share a source?
Probably a couple years into this term, after Erdogan hopefully gets the economy back on track, he puts forward a team of a 4-5 of the most capable and loyal party leaders to defacto hand over the party to. Then in 2 years, see who is doing the best and second best, and appoint them the future candidate and Vice candidate to run the party for the 2028 election.I hope he doesnt become another Soeharto/Soekarno. If he cares about his party long term goal, he should prepare not to participate for the next election and choose another AKP leader to represent the party for the next Presidential Election. Leading the country for 25 years should be enough for him.
Preserving democracy should be his main aim. For Indonesia, having Erdo as Turkish leader is a good thing. As you can see from my previous posts, I hope AKP has another leader, but the reality is that Erdo is still AKP leader. I dont like he becomes more authoritarian as this can lead to backlash for the Islamist if the future election is won by Secular power. Action will create Reaction.
What I mean is not like that. Turkey is still pretty liberal, the current state is already pretty decent for the secular liberal people.I agree, he has to win over a sizable amount of the secular people with policies of inclusion of he hopes to prevent a backlash in the future.
Thanks for the clarification. I agree, Erdogan should respect the boundaries of the spirit of the law and not abuse his power.What I mean is not like that. Turkey is still pretty liberal, the current state is already pretty decent for the secular liberal people.
What I mean is that Erdo should not become authoritarian. Like the way he put Istanbul Governoor into prison and also many journalists who are critical to him.
Harmony should be created between political parties, so who ever wins election is not really a matter of life and dead for the competing political powers in the country. Healthy competition between political parties should be created to create strong democracy and nation.
I don't think this is good for secular turkey. Erdogan is a dictator. There is ban on freedom of speech. If Teacher, Lawyers,or anybody criticize Erdogan, he throws them in prison. There are serious violation of human rights under Erdogan arm.
