Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan won the presidential election. Candidate Sinan Ogan, who received 5 percent of the votes in the election race, announced his support for President Erdogan.
Ogan came third in Turkey’s presidential election last week. He received 5.17 percent of the vote, making some analysts a potential runoff "”King Maker”.
Ogan announced his support for Erdogan at a news conference in Ankara, saying his campaign had brought Turkish nationalists into politics. "”Important player” has been made.
While asking his supporters to support Erdogan in the run-off, he said that before taking the final decision, we have done all kinds of consultations. We have taken this decision because we believe that our decision is for our country and nation. It is the right decision.
The announcement by the nationalist candidate comes days before the May 28 election that will decide whether Erdogan or main opposition leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu will lead the country for the next five years. .
Analysts say that even with Ogan’s endorsement, it is not certain that all of his supporters will go to Erdogan, as some supporters of the Viktor Party in the alliance are likely to gravitate to Kılıçdaroğlu, while the ATA Alliance There will be supporters who will refuse to vote in a run-off race.
