The highest bidder gets Mr. Oğan

The third candidate in the presidential election, Sinan Oğan was open to negotiations for a position, and it seems that Erdoğan has promised him more. Of course, Mr. Ogan will attribute Turkish nationalism idealistically, but like many other nationalist leaders, his allegiance can be bought. Devlet Bahçeli is way more experienced in that. If one is ready to sell his votes, one of the candidates has more resources to buy.

Mr. Oğan may be delusional with the votes he got, but he does not have a monolithic voter base, and I don’t believe he can convert most of the votes for Erdoğan’s candidacy. Still, Mr. Erdoğan has more advantages for the second round. Let’s see…
