İYİ (Good) Party leader Meral Akşener on Saturday claimed that her party has the support of 22 percent of the electorate, Cumhuriyet reported.
“We have had opinion polls conducted periodically. According to the most recent survey, the support for our party that remains constant is 16 percent. When the floating vote is added, that support reaches 22 percent,” said Akşener during a meeting at Bilkent University in Ankara.
Akşener also noted that a large number of people choose not to respond to the question of which party they will vote for.
A former interior minister and deputy speaker of the Turkish Parliament, Akşener launched the party on Oct. 25 under the motto “Turkey Will Be Good” to challenge President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and his ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP).
Akşener claimed on Jan. 10 that her party has the support of 20.5 percent of the electorate.
