Recep Tayyip Erdogan
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has confirmed that he is running for the presidency from the People's Alliance, Anadolu reports.
«I— candidate from the People's Alliance»,— Erdogan said.
He recalled that the presidential elections will be held in mid-June 2023.
People's Alliance— an electoral union created in February 2018 by the Justice and Development Party (Erdogan's party) and the far-right Nationalist Movement Party. It was formed to participate in the 2018 elections and joined forces supporting Erdogan's re-election. In May 2018, the opposition National Alliance was created, which united the Republican People's Party, the Good Party, the Happy Party and the Democratic Party.
The candidate from the National Alliance has not yet been determined. It is possible that the leader of the Republican People's Party, Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, may become it. However, the alliance is concerned that in this case, the chances of winning will be insignificant (Kılıçdaroğlu lost the previous elections), writes En Son Haber.
In early June, the official representative of the ruling Justice and Development Party, Omer Celik, said that the party had nominated Erdogan's candidacy from the People's Alliance.
