As a former AK Occasion minister reminded…

“The cement of the AK Occasion is Erdogan. I wished to share with you the fantasy of the white-haired ex-AK Occasion minister who mentioned, “The occasion can not stand after that.”

An AK Occasion member, white-haired, ministerial supervisor made an attention-grabbing remark after sifting the flour and hanging his sieve: “Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is the cement of the AK Occasion. A lot of the sport he will get depends upon his character. After that, the occasion can not stand.” When requested why, he mentioned, “The vast majority of the executives of the founding interval are usually not lively within the occasion, that is why I believe so. “I do not assume the occasion has developed its personal identification independently of the chief,” he mentioned.

I talked to different AK Occasion members in regards to the lack of ability of a celebration that has been main the nation for 20 years and is forward in all elections to realize its personal identification. Many shared the same view. They mentioned {that a} related scenario was skilled in Özal’s occasion and Demirel’s occasion.

A supervisor made an extra remark and mentioned, “Write down that Davutoğlu and Babacan, who left the AK Occasion and based a celebration, already aspire to the legacy of the AK Occasion after Erdogan. These votes have loads of suitors on the political scene,” he mentioned.

I researched what the AK Occasion vote fee was within the polls performed earlier than the 2023 elections. I got here throughout about 15 survey outcomes. I noticed that the AK Occasion vote was between 27-35%. In lots of polls, I witnessed that the CHP’s vote was one or two factors beneath the AK Occasion votes, and that the AK Occasion reached a distinction of 10 factors in an nameless public firm survey. In many of the Alliance ballot outcomes, the Nation Alliance is barely forward of the Individuals’s Alliance. The worst appears to be going head-to-head.

Primarily based on the previous administrator’s evaluation that “Erdogan is the cement of the occasion, the occasion can not stand after him”, once I thought of who would possibly aspire to the AK Occasion votes, a big checklist appeared. Individuals’s Alliance companion MHP comes first. It is usually talked about in some research that there are vital vote transitions between the 2 events. Aside from that, the 2 representatives of the nationwide view, Saadet and Yeni Welfare, would be the candidates for these votes. Babacan and Davutoğlu are among the many suitors. The IYI Occasion, which desires to settle within the middle of the political scene, can even need to participate on this publish. It shouldn’t be forgotten that those that need to keep within the AK Occasion and proceed on their means.

So why do I do that political fantasy, one would possibly ask?

In my journalism life, which began in 1962 and lasted for 60 years, following the occasions on the political scene, observing very completely different political occasion occasions, made me make this evaluation.


The occasions in Iran reminded Ferdowsi’s Shahnameh, who at all times rebelled in opposition to the oppressors. Is historical past repeating itself?
