Murat Akan, a columnist for the pro-government Diriliş Postası daily, said Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan will not allow an election to be held if he sees he will lose it, the T24 news website reported on Sunday.
“Don’t lose your concentration. Don’t get into a panic, Reis [Erdoğan] will not allow an election to take place that he will lose,” Akan tweeted on Thursday.
“The June 24 election is not an ordinary presidential election. It is a move to rescue Turkey from global tutelage and gather the Ummah [Muslims] under Turkey’s umbrella,” Akan said in another tweet the same day.
Akın has written a number of books, among them “NATO’s War with Islam” and “Superior Mind.”
In an interview with Bloomberg last week, Erdoğan said he has plans A, B and C if his party loses its majority in Parliament in the general election on June 24.
