BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:20 A.M.) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan boasted over the weekend that the upcoming presidential and parliamentary elections will end in the first round.
“There is no problem in public opinion surveys. Here, it is clearly seen that it [the election] will end in the first round,” Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in a live interview on Star TV.
Erdogan stated that the people of Turkey are committed to him and that his political party has a significant advantage over the rest.
“If there is a strong parliament behind the president, then the president will have a much faster decision-making process in the current government system,” he stated, as quoted by Anadolu News Agency.
“The number of lawmakers in parliament from his Justice and Development (AK) Party must be more than 300,” Erdogan added.
