I think this is the perfect timing for an effective Greens Party in Turkey. It would be the ultimate appeal for the “Generation Z”. A leader of the Green Party that will get 3-4 percent of votes in the first round of presidential election might negotiate to become the Minister of Environment in the second round of the election.
Ülkü Doğanay writes: It is not difficult to understand that Erdoğan and the ruling AKP do not like the possibility that Ekrem İmamoğlu might become the presidential candidate for the Nation Alliance. The government would prefer Muharrem İnce to be the opposition bloc's presidential candidate. The recent generous coverage of İnce by the pro-government media also mirrors this.
Former presidential candidate for main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) Muharrem İnce has revealed a tour bus for his new "movement." İnce will start to tour the country on Sept. 4 for his "The Country in 1,000 Days Movement."
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.
MHP leader Bahçeli, a staunch ally of the ruling AKP, has said that he was pleased to see Muharrem İnce, a senior name in the main opposition CHP, launch his new political movement. Experts have not found Bahçeli's support for the dissident movement surprising as İnce's move has a potential to weaken the opposition against the AKP-MHP bloc in the upcoming elections.
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.
CHP member and former presidential candidate Muharrem İnce is reportedly planning to found a new political party. "Our party will have individuals who are experts in their fields and their presence will excite everyone," İnce reportedly said.
