AFP PhotoPresident Recep Tayyip Erdoğan called on his supporters to vote in the country’s general elections scheduled on June 7, during an address in the Gölbaşı district of Ankara on June 5.
“Cast your votes with one hundred percent turnout. We will make this right? Are you going to be voting on Sunday in Ankara with the highest turnout in history?” asked Erdoğan, to his supporters who had gathered near the municipality building.
The president also recalled the developments achieved by the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) government.
“Politics was stuck, unable to provide service, the economy was crashing down, production was stopped, and social peace was under threat. Everyone was restless when we came to power in 2002,” said Erdoğan, adding all these situations have improved under the AKP’s rule since 2002.
He also said his party solved the problem of the headscarf ban in schools and public institutions. “I had problems too. My daughters could not attend school due to their headscarves,” said Erdoğan.
