Ankara roads to be closed for AKP election meeting
ANKARAThe Ankara Police Department has announced that it will block some roads in the capital on April 15 because of the ruling Justice and Development Party’s (AKP) meeting in which the party’s parliamentary candidates, as well as its election manifesto, will be announced.
