One of the biggest attention seekers of Turkish politics withdraws from the presidential race.
Muharrem İnce is one of the most untrustable politicians in the field, and his candidacy mostly helped Erdoğan’s chances. Despite him, Kılıçdaroğlu’s chances increased in the last weeks, and with another show, after seeing his chances were slim, Mr. İnce decided to quit. However, we will still see his face on the ballot papers as he withdrew after they were ready.
İnce, also the presidential candidate for the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) in 2018, has been seen as a potential threat to the opposition’s chances of defeating President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in Sunday’s elections.
