A oposição da Turquia une-se contra Erdogan

By Jordi Bou

May 14, 2023 - A nova aliança de oposição promete reverter as políticas do Presidente Erdogan no que muitos encaram como as eleições mais decisivas nos 100 anos de história da república.

Turkey’s often divided opposition parties have come together to choose a single candidate to face President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in May's election.

Kemal Kilicdaroglu, 74, leads the main secular opposition party, the centre-left Republican People's Party (CHP).

The coalition, called Nation Alliance, vows to reverse Erdogan’s economic, civil rights and foreign policies.

Polls suggest a tight race in a country highly polarised after two decades of Mr Erdogan's authoritarian rule.

After two decades in power the president is facing one of his toughest electoral tests, due to the combined effect of runaway inflation, alleged economic mismanagement and public outrage over the response to February’s devastating earthquake, which killed more than 45,000 in Turkey alone.
