‘They say enough is enough. You got tired, retreat. A new era will begin,” said the head of the largest opposition party, CHP, Kemal Kilicdaroglu, the DPA news agency. The people of Turkey longed for democracy, freedom and justice.

The parliamentary and presidential elections in Turkey are scheduled to take place in June 2023, but could be brought forward. An alliance of six, including the CHP and the national conservative Iyi party, wants to nominate a common candidate against Erdogan. Their goal is to abolish the current presidential system, under which Erdogan has had sweeping powers since 2018. In addition, the judiciary is in many parts under government control, as the EU Commission criticizes.
