The main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) has been preparing what it claims to be the “world’s biggest petition” for jailed journalists and academics in Turkey.

One year on from the failed coup, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is more autocratic than ever

Under Turkey’s increasingly illiberal president the country is becoming deeply polarisedThis week is the first anniversary of the failed coup against Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, a coup he has used since to further alienate his opponents. Most recently, on 16 April, he won a referendum to become head of state and head of government simultaneously, emerging as the most unassailable Turkish politician since Mustafa Kemal Atatürk established the secular republic in 1923.
