Preliminary observations on #TurkeyElections:
1) The opposition (#Nation bloc) making major gains, including the capital Ankara & Antalya.
2) HDP proved to be kingmakers - swayed votes to the #Nation bloc.
3) AKP losing significant votes & mayors to its #Peoples bloc partner MHP.
Preliminary prediction on #TurkeyElections: AKP cadres have seen that #Erdoğan's strategy of framing the elections around the theme "existential threat" has backfired, and will start complaining of losing votes, municipalities, & spoils to their ultranationalist partner #MHP.
Of #Turkey's 12 largest cities, the opposition is winning at least 7: #Ankara, #İzmir, #Adana, #Antalya, #Mersin, #Eskişehir, & #Diyarbakır. The largest city #Istanbul is a toss-up! #Bursa, too, is too close to call. AKP is losing Turkey's economic power houses. #TurkeyElections

5th day, this time in Istanbul, less than 24 hours before the voting starts for #secim2019 here in 🇹🇷.
The level of FUD spread by AKP friendly media has reached new highs. Never seen anything like it. The “other side” is literally being blamed for nominating candidates and asking for votes: basically what the basis of an election.
The most discouraging stat I have heard so far during the election season: level of distrust between different groups of Turks have never been worse. This might backfire against AKP, as people will want to escape the divisive rhetoric.

Second set of observations from #Secim2019 after some reading and TV watching.
1. Going beyond extreme lack of coverage for anything except “AKP-MHP Cumhur İttifakı”, government friendly TV and radio channels (there are a ton, each acting fair & balanced) openly spread FUD against any opponent.
2. That said, Cumhur’s opponents (“CHP-IYI Millet İttifakı”) are letting them get away with it. Lack of organizational and political skills are visible: complaining about unfair treatment, they are always playing defense. 🇹🇷 never ever voted for the best defense.

Initial observations for marketing and branding of local election candidates in Ankara, 🇹🇷.
AKP: 1, for showing strength with reference to multiple leaders.
CHP: 0, for looking disjointed. 🗳
AKP: 1, for clarity of message,
CHP: 0, for literally only using candidate’s face in posters. 🤦🏻‍♂️
