.. Erdogan is Turkey ‘ s president . His office carries with it quite a bit of power , but not enough for what he wants to do . So that is why Erdogan and his party , the Truth and Justice Party , or [AKP] called the elections . They thought that they would win a much larger majority . If they had , they could have turned Turkey into an authoritarian dictatorship , effectively ..
