Al-Arab newspaper: The loss of the Istanbul municipality strengthens the opposition within AKP.
Turkey's ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) has lost many points to its Turkish reputation and even to its international reputation as a result of the policy of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the founder of the party that turned into a private institution to run his projects.
According to Wolfango Piccoli, co-chair of the research firm Teno Intelligence, many politicians within the Justice and Development Party (AKP) considered the decision to force the re-election in Istanbul to be a disaster, as this adventure did not work. This result could fuel a sense of uneasiness among members of Erdogan's party, as well as his opponents, that "his political life is now heading towards an irreversible decline." "The second defeat of the AKP candidate marks the beginning of the end of Erdogan 's political life," said Mohamed Gonal Ulger, head of the Turkish polling center Polimeter.
