The CHP’s recent Party Assembly – where Muharrem Ince was not invited – only emphasized the conflict between Kilicdaroglu and his critics.
The current state of opposition leaders who vowed to lead Turkey only a couple of months ago leaves one thinking whether they have completely lost their senses.
The split between those that support Muharrem Ince and those that support Kemal Kilicdaroglu continues to damage the future of Turkey’s main opposition party, CHP.
The on-going power struggle within the CHP has now become solidified with the rivalry between Kemal Kilicdaroglu and Muharrem Ince.
Meral Akşener, Muharrem İnce, and Donald Trump have all had their different emotional outcries this week.
The support given to Turkey’s main opposition – CHP – by western media outlets only harms the party more than widening its prospects.
“The trauma experienced by the CHP electorate since the election day is surely in the realm of psychiatry.”
Following Muharrem Ince’s success in the elections in comparison to the CHP as a whole, the question arises as to whether he will run for chairmanship.
Political players that draw the right lessons from the June 24 elections will successfully adapt to changing circumstances.
The June 24 elections were the first general elections that were held in the aftermath of the failed military coup attempt on July 15, 2016, and as such they represented the dawn of democratic normalization and a potential end to the state of emergency that was declared after the coup.
