Turkey election

Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has won the presidential runoff election, and has now been at the helm for two decades, first as prime minister, and since 2014, as president. This was a close election and the first time in Turkey's history that there was a runoff.

His opposition, Kemal Kilicdaroglu, claims that Erdogan used state funds to get elected.

But regardless of how he ran his campaign, he has been reelected for another five years. We will talk about what lies ahead for Turkey as it is facing many challenges and which direction Erdogan will turn, to the East or West, for its foreign policy priority.
