Erdogan loses hold over Turkish capital


first_imgRecep Tayyip ErdoganTurkey’s Tayyip Erdogan suffered a severe setback as his ruling AK Party lost control of the capital Ankara for the first time in a local election and he appeared to concede defeat in the country’s largest city, Istanbul.Erdogan, who has dominated Turkish politics since coming to power 16 years ago and ruled his country with an ever tighter grip, campaigned relentlessly for two months ahead of Sunday’s vote, which he described as a “matter of survival” for Turkey.But the president’s daily rallies and overwhelmingly supportive media coverage failed to win over the country’s capital or secure a definitive result in Istanbul, as Turkey’s economic downturn weighed heavily on voters.Turkish broadcasters said opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) candidate Mansur Yavas had won a clear victory in Ankara, but the vote count in Istanbul was so tight that both parties declared the narrowest of victories.”The people have voted in favour of democracy, they have chosen democracy,” opposition leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu said, declaring that his secularist Republican People’s Party (CHP) had taken Ankara and Istanbul from the AK Party and held its Aegean coastal stronghold of Izmir, Turkey’s third largest city,Defeat for Erdogan’s Islamist-rooted party in Ankara was a significant blow for the president. Losing Istanbul, where he launched his political career and served as mayor in the 1990s, would be an even greater symbolic shock and a broader sign of dwindling support.State-owned Anadolu Agency said the AKP would appeal in some districts of the capital.In Istanbul, the AK Party said former prime minister Binali Yildirim defeated his CHP rival Ekrem Imamoglu by a mere 4,000 votes – with both candidates polling more than 4 million votes. Imamoglu said he had a lead of 28,000 with only 2,000 votes uncounted.In a speech to supporters in Ankara, Erdogan appeared to accept AKP defeat in Istanbul, although he maintained that most neighbourhoods in the city were held by his party. “Even if our people gave away the mayorship, they gave the districts to the AK Party,” he said.The party would appeal results wherever needed, he added.Turning a PageErdogan pledged that Turkey would now focus on its troubled economy in the run-up to national elections in 2023. “We have a long period ahead where we will carry out economic reforms without compromising on the rules of the free-market economy,” he told reporters.Turkey’s most prominent leader since the founder of the Turkish republic Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, Erdogan’s support has been based on strong economic growth and backing from a core constituency of pious, conservative Muslim Turks.A consummate campaigner, he has been the country’s most popular – although divisive – modern politician, tightening his grip in elections last year that ushered in a powerful executive presidency, approved in a bitter 2017 referendum which alarmed Western allies who fear growing authoritarianism in Turkey.But a currency crisis after last year’s election dragged the lira down by 30 percent and tipped the economy towards recession. With inflation close to 20 percent and unemployment rising, some voters appeared ready to punish the president.”Today’s elections are as historic as that of 1994,” prominent journalist Rusen Cakir tweeted, referring to the year Erdogan was elected mayor of Istanbul. “It is a declaration that a page that was opened 25 years ago is being turned.”As authorities again scrambled to shore up the lira over the past week, Erdogan cast the country’s economic woes as resulting from attacks by the West, saying Turkey would overcome its troubles and adding he was “the boss” of the economy.However Wolfango Piccoli, co-president of Teneo political risk advisers, said the AK Party had lost seven of the country’s 12 main cities, even without taking Istanbul into account.”It’s a bad night for the AK Party,” he said. “They have done very poorly in all the economic powerhouses of country. For a party which portrays itself as pro-business, it’s a huge issue.”The lira traded at 5.61 to the dollar after initial results came in, compared with 5.55 at Friday’s close and 5.65 in US trading hours later on Friday.In mainly Kurdish southeast Turkey, residents celebrated as the pro-Kurdish opposition Peoples Democratic Party (HDP) won back municipalities that authorities had taken over two years ago, accusing the HDP of terrorist links. The HDP denies links to the outlawed militant Kurdistan Workers’ Party.”They robbed us of our will and we overturned this,” Diyarbakir resident Abdullah Elmas said.last_img read more


Babies And Baseball A Dad Plants The Seeds For A Shared Love


first_imgPhoto illustration by Claire Harbage/NPR and Paige Vickers for NPRPete Van Vleet plays with his daughter, Madeline, 6, and his son, Jack, 9 months. Van Vleet is a baseball superfan; his favorite team is the Houston Astros. Madeline’s is the Detroit Tigers because she generally likes the teams with animal mascots.Pete Van Vleet of Ashland, Va., is a Houston Astros fan – and was well before the team’s World Series win this year. They were his team back when they were bad. As part of Morning Edition‘s exploration of how fandoms help shape identity, Van Vleet explains how his love for the Astros has been a big part of him since childhood. Even today, if he needs a mood boost, he listens to game highlights from his youth. Can a passion be inherited? Now a father, he’s excited at the idea of sharing his love of baseball with his two young children, Jack, an infant, and Madeline, his 6-year-old daughter and budding Detroit Tigers fan. Here, in his own words, Van Vleet talks about how his fandom has roots that are deeply connected to his parenting of Jack and Madeline.This has been lightly edited for clarity.A team a person roots for says a lot about that person. When I was growing up, there was no team around us, so it was up to me to pick my own team. And the Astros had the coolest uniforms. They played in the Astrodome, which was just fantastic. And they suffered.Claire Harbage/NPRJack, 9 months, sucks on a baseball that was sent by the New York Mets.I will tell this quick story: I used to play baseball by myself in the backyard. I would pretend I was the Astros, and the team would lose. Even in my own imagination the team would lose.Soon after Jack was born I decided to write a letter to every team to ask them, “Why should my son choose you to be a fan?”Claire Harbage/NPRTeams sent souvenirs to Jack, some of which he still needs to grow into. Dirt from Fenway, batting gloves from the Rays, a truck from the Mets and a cap from the Nationals.Eighteen major league teams sent us back letters or emails or packages, and it might include a onesie or a hat or a nice little toy and stickers.I just want him to pick the team that in his heart is going to grab his heart, going to capture his imagination and just going to steal him away for life.Claire Harbage/NPRVan Vleet helps Madeline put on her Detroit Tigers ball cap.I took Madeline to Baltimore to see the Tigers play. We went to two games. The first game was a night game. And around the fifth inning she just kind of crawled into my lap, and I just kind of had to tell myself, “Remember this now. Remember this feeling and this moment now because five years from now, maybe less, she’s not going to do this.” And I know that’s part of growing up, but at least we’ll have that together now.Claire Harbage/NPRVan Vleet kisses Jack as they head inside the house.What I think drives people to fandom, I think there’s some escapism to it. Whatever is going on in my life now, or Madeline’s life, that all kind of lifts off from your shoulder when you enter this cathedral of a ballpark. And for maybe a couple of hours on a summer night, the problems aren’t as big, your worries aren’t as burdensome. You can just enjoy life for that little bit.Dave Blanchard (@blanchardd) is a producer with Morning Edition.
