İYİ Party candidate ‘confident’ about moving to second round of presidential elections
“But you will see in the first round. The voters are prudent and wise. I will be the one passing to the second round,” she said in a televised interview.
The İYİ Party candidate reasoned her expectations to reach the aisle in the second round of presidential elections to the fact that the CHP and her party have different electorates. Akşener said her party’s constituent is conservatives of the central right.
A group of voters, who are “tired of losing all the time, are feeling better with İnce. But my audience is conservatives of the central right,” she said.
İYİ was founded by former members of the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), another right-wing nationalist opposition party. Its members fell out with MHP leader Devlet Bahçeli after he allied with the ruling party.
