Sinan Ogan: "Upon receiving the mandate of deputy, I will personally do everything for the development of Turkey's relations with its neighbors"
The parliamentary elections in Turkey have caused widespread reaction
in the world. Turkish political scientist and head of the Center for
Strategic Studies in Turkey TÜRKSAM, Sinan Ogan, noted in his
interview to Vestnik Kavakaza that elections to the Turkish Grand
National Assembly were peaceful. Sinan Ogan was the main candidate
from the Nationalist Movement Party from the Igdir region and has won
the deputy mandate.
The ruling AKP, according to the information of the election
commission, will gain 49.9% of the votes. However, as noted by Ogan,
this is not enough to win an absolute majority of seats, which would
have allowed Erdogan to change the Turkish constitution.
As an expert on foreign policy, the interlocutor of Vestnik Kavkaza
noted that the new parliament will not change priorities of the
foreign policy of Turkey. Ankara will continue to actively cooperate
with Russia and fully support Azerbaijan in its conflicts with Armenia
over Nagorno-Karabakh, seeking peaceful means to resolve this problem.
