Erdogan wins 6 more years as Turkey’s president with sweeping new powers

Official results from Turkey’s election gave Recep Tayyip Erdogan Monday a 52.54 percent victory over the 30,68 percent garnered by opposition front runner Muharrem Ince. Following last year’s constitutional referendum, Erdogan will rule with enhanced executive powers to issue decrees, appoint the cabinet and vice presidents as well as senior judges. In his victory speech, Erdogan said the people had voted “in favor of democracy, rights and freedom.”
The pro-Kurdish HDP party’s leader Ahmed Sik said that despite the election being held under “unjust conditions,” the results showed “great resistance to an organized crime network.” The HDP took 11.67 percent of the vote to become the second largest party in parliament.

    But he won’t be able to rule for 6 years. He will be ashamed and defeated on the mountains of Israel. Courtesy the soon coming Ezekiel 38.
    Maybe then his voters will hang him.

    Erdogan is an erratic loud-mouthed muslim retard. Only a stupid moron could vote for him. Looks like there’s quite a few in ‘turkey’ though. Do these idiots actually think this autocratic thug will do anything but turn the country into another iran? They must want it that way? Well, good bye any prosperity this warmonger will blow it all soon.

      Erdogan MUST throw himself on the GROUND before the feet of the Armenian people and BEG FOR FORGIVENESS and PAY REPARATIONS to the Armenian people for Turkey’s GENOCIDE (1.5 million) of the Armenian people.

    I have been reading Debka for many years and I understand why you need to allow advertising but your commercial ads are becoming vile. They are crooked and offer products that are patently false. You click on one icon and are directed to something totally different! I am now receiving false offers via email.

    Please clean this up before your reputation is totally destroyed.

    Turkey is what the EU will become in 10-15 years. Erdogan is a dictator and is seems that Muslim people will always vote for the worst options – Islam is what they will vote for and Islam is what will destroy the country because the “religion” is always more important than the country and the Islamic dictator will always work for Islam, not the people or the country.
