Erdogan, amid discussions, confirms Turkish elections scheduled for May 14
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan confirmed that general elections in the country are planned for May 14.
Earlier, TV channel Habertürk, citing its own sources, reported that amid a series of devastating earthquakes, the general elections in Turkey could be postponed for the period from six months to a year. According to the newspaper, the Higher Election Commission (YSK) will come up with a corresponding initiative at the request of the ruling party. However, presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalın said there is a trend toward holding general elections in May if there is no reverse political consensus in the coming days.
“The time is near. Know that the people will do what is necessary on May 14,” Erdoğan said during a speech at a party meeting on Wednesday.
