Elección presidencial en Turquía

By Duncan Mil

May 12, 2023 - Cuando Turquía vota en elecciones presidenciales y parlamentarias, los líderes opositores de la alianza "Mesa de los Seis" se concentran en una profunda crisis económica, la inflación rampante y las consecuencias de los catastróficos terremotos que mataron a 50.000 personas.

Türkiye’s presidential candidate Muharrem Ince -- one of four contesting Sunday’s presidential election -- pulled out of the race Thursday, potentially boosting the leading opposition candidate’s chances of beating President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

A survey by Konda, one of Türkiye’s more respected polling firms, put support for Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, candidate of the National Alliance -- or so-called Table of Six -- at 49.3 per cent in the first round. Erdoğan, who has clung to power for 21 years, would receive only 43.7 per cent of the votes. The poll suggests the election could go to a run-off between the two men on May 28.

The third challenger, Sinan Ogan, stood at 4.8 per cent in research conducted on May 6 and 7. Konda questioned 3,480 people in 35 of Turkey’s 81 provinces. Konda said the survey has a margin of error of +/- 2.2 per cent at a 99 per cent confidence level.

Nicknamed “Gandhi Kemal” by Türkiye’s media, Kılıçdaroğlu is a soft-spoken politician credited with uniting an opposition that wants to dismantle the executive presidential system installed by Erdoğan and return to a parliamentary system.
