Where does Türkiye stand? A glimpse at the Turkish polity in 2023
This podcast was recorded before the second round of the Turkish presidential election. While the result of the latter was still unknown, the first round as well as the legislative elections had marked clear tendencies within the Turkish society. Amongst them, a form of affirmation and rebirth of nationalism as drivers and revived guiding principles of the functioning of the Turkish polity. In particular, a key observation that was drawn after the first results of Türkiye's general elections were known was that the weak economic results, which Mr. Erdogan's heteredox policies had led to, did not seem to weaken the ability of the president's popular base to mobilize for its champion. For this episode of the PCNS podcasts, Dr. Serhat Suha, senior researcher at Trends Research and Advisory, answered the questions of Mr. Akram Zaoui, Senior Specialist at the PCNS.
