President Erdogan Speaks on Withdrawal of a Presidential Candidate
In a recent speech at Mamak-Altındağ, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan commented on the recent decision of a candidate to withdraw from the presidential race. The chairman of the Country Party, Muharrem İnce, had announced the decision, citing difficulties in opening a third channel and allegations of financial corruption.
In response, Erdoğan expressed his disappointment at the withdrawal, but emphasized that the important thing is the decision of the people. He reaffirmed his commitment to continue on the road with others, implying that there are other candidates in the race that he plans to work with.
Erdoğan also addressed concerns about the fairness of the election and accusations of corruption. He argued that it is not possible to aspire to the administration of the country by promising positions of authority and called for the preservation of the nation’s destiny.
Furthermore, Erdoğan expressed opposition to the negative tactics employed by some candidates, including teasing people on the street and using FETO-style tape threats. He stressed the importance of working together with the nation to achieve the country’s goals, rather than using divisive tactics to turn people against each other.
Erdoğan’s speech comes just weeks before the June 24 presidential election in Turkey. While the withdrawal of a candidate is sure to shake things up, Erdoğan’s comments suggest that the race will continue on and that the people will ultimately make the final decision.
