BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 A.M.) – Turkey’s presidential candidate Muharrem Ince rallied in front of hundreds of thousands of supporters at a campaign rally in Istanbul on Saturday, just one day before the start of his first tour before Turkey’s snap president elections.

During his rally, which was not broadcasted on any Turkish television channel, Ince made several promises to the crowd, while also providing a glimpse into his potential presidency.

“If the eyes are not lying, if the words are not lying, if the squares are not lying, if the streets are not lying, this has been done, this is job is done. Rest assured. Not a president with a long face, not a tired president, a president with fresh blood,” he began.

“Not a president which is yelling ‘Eyyy’ in the rallies, a president which is talking about the future at rallies, a president who talks about nano technology, space mining, a president who is talking about cars without drivers, a president who promises not to open coffee shops but factories. Not a president who is offering free cake after sixteen years of service but a president talking about, jobs, food and bread,” Ince told the crowd.

“I will do whatever it takes to create an independent judiciary, the economy cannot recover without an independent judiciary, to recover the economy you have to free the judiciary, that’s where we will start. How nice of you. There will be a Turkey like this. We will establish together a Turkey like this,” he continued.

“I am proud of you too. I am proud of five million here. I am proud of the 81 million.” he added.

Wow he does seem to have a lot more support than the Turkish media has been telling us.
Erdogan’s instigated all sorts of reforms and introduced new laws that will give the winner of this upcoming election unprecedented powers and authority, wouldn’t it be ironic if he wasn’t the recipient of them.
Erdogan might yet be on the receiving end of some of those new powers instead of being the one using them LOL.
But probably not 🙁

We can be sure the election is being rigged, just like the so-called referendum.
I fear we’ll have to get rid of the problem through some more nastier methods…

I don’t see him accepting unfavorable results.
