Erdoğan claims Gülen coined CHP’s election slogans, PKK determined candidates

Must read

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan claimed at an election rally on Friday that the election slogans of the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) were coined by Pennsylvania-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gülen and that the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) determined the candidate selection of the opposition parties.

At a rally in Fethiye in the run-up to the March 31 local elections, Erdoğan argued that the CHP is cooperating with the Gülen movement, which he accuses of plotting a failed coup attempt in July 2016, as well as the PKK, both of which he considers terrorist organizations.
