Lol chp, they are an embarassement in politics. They are bunch of laughing stocks. Even leftists here don't know whether to vote chp or not. That's why you see Erdogan is always winning. Chp is the party that fucked Turkey's economy and reputation. When chp was in power Turkey never progressed, thats why European countries are richer than Turkey today. Majority of our people, especially the conservatives will never vote chp. And stop coming to me with that "Authoritarian Turkey ruled by a dictator" shit. Turkey was more authoritarian than you could ever think before, especially in Atatürk's era they were a authoritarian state, if you could research a little bit you will understand what im saying. Erdogan gets %52 with 59 million people participating in the elections while Putin gets %77. Stop comparing Turkey with Russia in terms of politics. And im saying this again and again, Turkey never looks to join EU as long as Erdogan is in power. If Turkey stays only as candidate, its a win-win situation for both. Because EU will not get 80 million muslims but also keep trade relations with Turkey high, and i know that you don't want Turkey to join even if they look they are %100 secular.
