Turkey's ruling AKP party faces its biggest test yet.. at elections this weekend. Support for the AKP is waning; mirroring the nation's economic woes.
Turkey is heading for early elections on June 24. The winner of the crucial vote will wield extraordinary power, which is exactly what President Recep Tayyip Erdogan wants, says DW's Seda Serdar.
In an interview with DW, Sevim Dagdelen said Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was deliberately creating tension ahead of the vote in June. The snap elections are being held during an extended state of emergency.
The vote was not due until November next year but President Erdogan has called snap presidential and parliamentary elections. They have been slated for June 24.
