Elections

So the London-leg of the genera elections in Turkey was on 30-31 May.

The turnout was just under 30% apparently. Not bad compared to last year’s Presidential elections. Well, not only they were in August, when most are on holiday but also it was a pretty much foregone conclusion.

This one is hopefully not a foregone conclusion. Interesting debates are going on between those who know they will definitely not be voting for AKP but have not made up their minds as to whether to vote for the devil we know or risk it. There are of course over 20 parties, some of which at least this blogger (given the benefit of the distance) had never heard of before last weekend.

Translatingtaksim is independent of all political ties. Just please vote.
