According to the report, more than 42,000 people were killed in the February 6 earthquake in Turkey, and a few days after the devastating earthquake, a government official said that the earthquake had created serious difficulties in holding elections on time. But the close circles of the president have reported that the elections will be held as per the schedule. According to various surveys, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan is facing the most difficult elections of his political life.
According to sources, the decision to postpone the elections was abandoned because there was a perception that the government was avoiding the elections when the proposal faced negative reactions from the opposition and legal issues related to the constitution.
Earthquake disaster & Rising inflation
It should be noted that before the disaster caused by the earthquake, Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s popularity had ended due to rising inflation and the decline of the lira. They have faced criticism over the government’s performance after the deadliest earthquake in the country’s modern history. Retrenchments have been banned.
