Binali Yıldırım, the AK Party’s Deputy Chairman, spoke at a rally held in Izmir’s Karabağlar district ahead of the upcoming elections on Sunday. The rally was attended by the Minister of Youth and Sports, Mehmet Muharrem Kasapoğlu, Bilal Saygılı, who is a deputy candidate from İzmir, AK Party İzmir Provincial Chairman, and AK Party Karabağlar District Chairman, Hüseyin Uzun, as well as other AK Party İzmir deputy candidates.

The upcoming elections are seen as crucial for Turkey’s future, with voters set to choose between the ruling AK Party and several opposition parties. The results of the elections are likely to have a significant impact on Turkey’s political, social, and economic trajectory in the years to come.
