Erdogan pointed out in statements that “going to the polls every 15 or 20 months is something that is seen only in primitive tribes” and assured that governmental Justice and Development Party (AKP) will prevail again in the next presidential and parliamentary elections, the source noted.

The president said that after winning the elections, the AKP will take the country “to a new stage in the construction of a great and powerful Turkey”, and added “that is why we work and knock on the doors of all people, we shake hands with them and win their hearts”.

The calling for early elections in Turkey is demanded by several opposition political forces, including the People’s Republican Party (CHP) and the Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP), which hold the second and third positions in Parliament by number of representatives.

The Turkish president emphasized that since its founding in 2001 the AKP, which is currently a member of the People’s Alliance along with the ultra-conservative Nationalist Movement Party, has prevailed in all elections, and assured it will get a record number of votes in next ones.
