Final race to the election campaign: Erdogan accuses the United States of wanting to overthrow news

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accuses the opposition in the final stretch of the election campaign of wanting to overthrow him with the help of the United States. “Biden[presidente dos EUA, Joe]gave the order to overthrow Erdogan, I know that. All my people know that,” the 69-year-old said at a rally in Istanbul yesterday, looking up at US President Joe Biden.

He has not substantiated his allegations. Erdogan’s opponent Kemal Kilicdaroglu abstained from campaign events yesterday and only visited the mausoleum of Kemal Ataturk, the founder of modern Turkey.

Kilicdaroglu is ahead in polls

According to polls, Erdogan is behind Kilicdaroglu. In addition to the President, Parliament will also be re-elected today. Erdogan’s conservative-Islamic AKP is fighting alongside the nationalist MHP against an alliance of six led by Kilicdaroglu. The strongest force in the sextet is Kilicdaroglu’s secular Republican People’s Party (CHP).

Late on Sunday, there could be the first indications that there will be a runoff for the presidency. This is the case if none of the candidates scores more than 50 percent.
