An interview with Republican People’s Party’s (CHP) presidential candidate Muharrem İnce to be published on Sunday in the Hürriyet newspaper was cancelled at the last minute by the newspaper’s administration, ODA TV reported on Saturday.

Hürriyet, the flagship of the Turkish press, belongs to Doğan Media, which was bought by the pro-government Demirören Group in March.

ODA TV also reported that the executives of the CNN Türk news channel, belonging to the same media group, were unhappy with the channel broadcasting a CHP ceremony on Friday during which the party announced İnce’s candidacy.

The channel did not cover İnce’s first election rally today in Yalova.
