Opposition's anti-Russia accusations helped Erdogan win

– First round of presidential and parliamentary elections in Turkey completed. Particularly in the parliamentary elections, led by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. “People's Alliance” regained its parliamentary majority.

As for the opposition “Nation Alliance”, representing the Kurds and socialists “Labor and Freedom Alliance” There is an increase of approximately 4% compared to the previous elections..

The surprise of the elections was that Sinan Ogan was declared as a presidential candidate. “ancestral alliance” It was done by. Ata alliance, which stands out with its anti-refugee policies, led to the run-off of the presidential election. In other words, the deputies who will represent the people in the parliament were determined with the parliamentary elections.. However, the President will be finalized after the second round..

There has never been another period in Turkey where the political parties have been so sharply sharpened.. In Turkey's 100th anniversary, either the opponents of Erdogan had to win the elections with a pluralist policy or Turkey was on Erdogan's route., would continue to pursue its own policies.
The consequences of the earthquake in eastern Turkey were no reason to overthrow the government. The economic crisis and uncertainties in Turkey did not become a factor that would change the outcome..

President Erdogan, managed to protect its own power with strategic steps.
Erdogan, especially the last 2 made breakthroughs on a global scale over the years. Turkey's production of the "Togg" brand vehicle, Russia – Being the pioneer of the "Grain Agreement" made in Istanbul on the solution of the food crisis by taking responsibility in the Ukraine war, Strategic agreements with Russia, Akkuyu Nuclear Power Plant, Establishment of gas center in Turkey and many more projects, These were the determining factors of the elections..

Turkey, Russia played its trump card very well against the disagreements it had with western countries..

Concrete agreements helped Turkey achieve its goals more easily in this challenging period..
However, Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, the presidential candidate of the opposition,, The claim that Russia will interfere in the elections in Turkey did not find a response in the society.. Maybe these were the steps that made the opposition lose votes..

When we look at the votes abroad, we see that the Turks living in Russia increased their support for the government compared to the previous election results, but their support for the opposition decreased..

Turks living in Russia, He knew that if relations with Russia deteriorated, it would be harmful.. Voters living in Turkey had the same concerns..

The anti-Russian policies of the Future Party, the party of former Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu within the opposition bloc, caused discomfort in society.

Former Minister of Economy Ali Babacan's proximity to western countries and his sharply American policies caused concerns in Turkish voters..

All the political approaches of the leaders of the political parties in the Nation Alliance caused the presidential candidate Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu to use a wrong rhetoric..

Russia's, He probably knew himself that he was not interfering in the elections in Turkey.. However, I think Kılıçdaroğlu made such a claim with the imposition of leaders such as Ahmet Davutoğlu and Ali Babacan..
But there are some facts.

Relations between Türkiye and Russia are now intertwined. Both in the eyes of the societies and in the eyes of the administrations, this 2 No step that will open the country between them will be accepted from now on..

Continuity is essential in states. Even if the name governing Turkey changes, that is, even if Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu wins the elections, he will not be able to disrupt the agreements and relations established.. Because the deals, binds states, not governments. However, the need to complete the agreements, that is, the projects, which should already be implemented, has emerged in the Turkish electorate..

Turkish voter, Akkuyu NPP, He thinks that the establishment of a gas center in Turkey and the cooperation agreements in the field of defense should be completed immediately.. However, he is concerned that if Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu wins, there may be delays in the implementation of these projects..

Therefore, the opposition candidate Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, If he had assured the voters that the agreements with Russia would be implemented instead of raising these allegations without concrete evidence, he would probably have a better chance of being elected..
