Turkey is remembering victims of the Sivas Massacre, which took place when a large group of radical Islamists set the Madımak Hotel in the Central Anatolian province of Sivas on fire on July 2, 1993, killing 33 intellectuals and two hotel personnel, on 27th anniversary. Also on July 2, a parliamentary inquiry to reveal the perpetrators of the Sivas Massacre was rejected by lawmakers of the AKP, MHP and the İYİ Party.
Islamist Felicity Party leader shares video about Turkish economy featuring title song from ‘Titanic’
Islamist Felicity Party (Saadet) leader Temel Karamollaoğlu shared a video with key economic statistics about Turkey, featuring a badly played version of "My Heart Will Go On." The leader said that it wasn't "the music that's annoying, it was the numbers!" The leader's tweet is most likely a reference to Turkey's latest official labor data, which displayed huge inconsistencies.
Felicity Party leader Temel Karamollaoğlu has accused the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) of planning to rig the next elections. "I'm saying that they will rig the elections. Understand it as you please. They'll intervene in the number of votes, because they did so in the past. They killed people near ballot boxes," he said, referring to the killing of two Felicity Party members during March 31, 2019 local elections.
