Duvar English’s editor-in-chief Cansu Çamlıbel and pollster Can Selçuki discuss the underlying factors behind the recent moves of Turkey’s ruling alliance which paves the way for further polarization in politics as the country enters the final months of 2020. They also analyze the effects of the sharp decline of the Turkish Lira against foreign currencies over public’s perception.

Can Selçuki refers to the recent opinion polls they conducted while trying to explain why the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) and its alliance partner Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) have been deliberately escalating tensions and resorting to hardline policies.
