Erdogan's arrogance

Reader comment on item: Istanbul's Election Puzzle

Submitted by Stuart Weinstein (United States), Jun 30, 2019 at 19:40

This is simply an example of Erdogan's arrogance.

I believe Erdogan thought the initial vote was an fluke, and a second vote would remedy things

So impressed with himself is he, that the thought he would need to *secure* his candidate's election was an anathema to him
