Re: TURKISH ELECTIONS ARE TWO DAYS FROM NOW!!!!

For the first decade of Erdugan rule Turkey has enjoyed high growth rates. They big change came in the second decade, I believed its tied with his overreaching attempt to reposition Turkey as regional power.

Is a breakdown of voting patterns available for the first round? I would be interested to know who various age groups voted for.
Also is there any into on Turkey society birth rate by secular vs religious?

I am richer than the country I am living in. Let that sink in.
My country is in hock for more money than exists.

I mean, I understand your position, but it is regrettably not at all unique.

All the best. Not much to say, but I've been intermittently lurking until now.

(A few years back, a local radio station had a competition "Who Wants To Be A Turkish Millionaire?", with frankly insignificant prize framed in terms (maybe even in the actually currency?) of what they are in Turkish Lira. Like, when I was younger, it was Italian Lira that was 'funny'/commonly known about through tourism and common travel of the day, but that was merely "thousands for a can of coke", before the switch to euro. Hmmm. Is it still Zimbabwe that's currently tue exchange-rate whipping dog, even after hacking off arbitrary zeroes? I could check, but this isn't really all that helpful a comment to tack on.)

Voting is over...

Now, the votes shall be counted...

I am scared.

If ersoğan wins, Turkey will go bankrupt in 6-9 months. I, as a pansexual autistic atheist, may be targeted, or even killed.

Don't believe me? You think I am exaggerating? Then you will be unpleased to know that the allies of AKP are currently talking about how they want to make premarital sex illegal, LGBT completely banned and single woman to be "adopted".

Essentially, sharia law, which means I die.

I hate Islam.

It will be a long night in Turkey.

I don't believe that Erdogan won't cheat enough to guarantee victory in case he has slightly less than necessary. The question for me is whether the opposition will go to the streets or not.

Not even night. This election will be swift. There are only two canidates to choose from, and no parliament voting at all.

I doubt he would need to cheat this time. I am worried about Turkish economy if it goes the same way Erdogan might start to rely on Russian income even more which might turn into a double edged sword.

Good luck going forward. Do you have any kind of escape plan?
