VIDEO: Man appears both in AKP, HDP election ads
ISTANBULAttentive viewers have spotted a Turkish actor who has played parts in both the ruling Justice and Development Party’s (AKP) and the Kurdish problem-focused Peoples’ Democratic Party’s (HDP) ads ahead of the June 7 general elections.
The older gentleman is seen in HDP’s television commercial while laughing. In the AKP’s ad, he is seen being visited by a social aid worker and leaving a hospital.
The discovery started a buzz on Turkish social media June 1.
“Our country is like a joke,” one Twitter user said, while many others argued and used the incident to support or slam a political party.
