2018 presidential elections
Turkey's main opposition CHP on Aug. 13 released a written statement in an attempt to refute party dissident Muharrem İnce's allegations that the CHP officials undermined his presidential election campaign in 2018 and did not provide sufficient support to him. The CHP said that the party provided a financial support of 82 million Turkish liras for İnce's campaign and did everything possible in its power to protect the ballot boxes on the night of the election on June 24, 2018.
CHP member and former presidential candidate Muharrem İnce has kicked off a new movement, as he also slammed his own party. "Our movement consists of individuals experts in their fields. We're preparing for 'victory.' We'll act in line with our vision and the people's wills. The people would finance us just like they did before the presidential elections," İnce said in a press conference on Aug. 13.
