headlines the news continues here on al-jazeera and sad story next keep it or. roger voted one wins reelection with greater power thanks to a change in the constitution he says it's so when for democracy but is it one with an executive presidency for the rest of the world this is inside story.
8:22 pm
hello welcome to the show i'm sam he's a than raja has dominated turkey's political scene for the past sixteen years and he looks set to continue for many more to come his reelection on sunday makes him turkey's first executive president well that means he has new expanded powers because of changes to the constitution approved in last year's referendum his main opposition rival accepts the result but how to enjoy says the election was unfair these warne's are the ones one man rule is a danger to turks so how will the balance of power change we'll talk to our guests in a moment but first of all reports from the capital ankara. yet again rich of tape erdogan is victorious this success however will taste a lot sweeter for the man who's now won more than ten successive national polls
8:23 pm
since his ak party came to power in two thousand and two sunday's vote was a gamble by early one who hold for the early elections at a time when turkey's currency was at the weakest it's been in year. but it seems to have paid off for the man whose name has now become almost synonymous with that of his country addressing his supporters i don't describe sunday as a victory for all of us hark he was assuming golly be the winners of this election are the eighty one million turkish citizens of this country each and every one is a winner in this election everybody exercised their rights by going to the ballot boxes and casting their votes and i want to thank everybody you are writing history going into the vote it seemed that the galvanized opposition could prevent iran from winning in the first round forcing a runoff that could possibly pose a bigger threat to his quest to become the first president under the new constitution the main concern democratic i'm in jail of the c.h.p. had tried to garner support from all sections of society he would the religious
8:24 pm
basis by public you joining prayers in some cities and attempted to reach out to the right wing blocs by promising to expel millions of syrian refugees if elected but as large as injuries crowds were or those of erdogan in the end what mattered were the numbers of ballots cost in their favor turks will have a proud tradition of high voter turnout did not disappoint early indications were that more than eighty six percent of them participated while our two ones our party were points with the presidential victory there will be disappointment over their parliamentary performance with the a.k.p. losing the two thirds supermajority they once held only managing to secure a simple majority with the help of their nationalist m. h.p. allies the big winners in the parliamentary votes were the kurdish h.t.t.p. winning over fifty seats making just new legislative body more diverse than the previous one and it's that who it is i'm that many in turkey will hope can help bridge the political divide that continues to affect turkish society speaking to
8:25 pm
the nation i don't seem to understand those concerns. we're here. no one should be discriminated against in this country because of their belief because of their gender or because of their origins we will not allow this. the opposition will be disappointed that they were unable to at least force a second round of voting they will take heart however from their improved performance in the parliament and the fact that a relatively unknown person like i was able to secure thirty percent in such an important election with. not only one ticket. politician and. i becoming the person for him hard. to believe in the. right. to
8:26 pm
become. rich in history no one. will be telling the current. political or economic. or the new executive powers for the president meaning now appoints the cabinet half of the abolition of the post of prime minister and yet to be determined number of vice presidents will be chosen the president will be able to issue decrees as well as appoint all remove government ministers civil servants even judges all without parliaments approval of the parliamentary business such as drafting the state budget is also in the hands of the president he can dissolve parliament triggering early presidential elections declare a state of emergency for up to six months without cabinet approval and under the new constitution if one can run for another term effectively staying in power until
8:27 pm
twenty twenty eight. let's bring in our guest now joining us from istanbul is n.-s. biologically is a professor of international relations at the turkish german university from new york fellow at the century foundation focusing on turkey's foreign policy in the middle east and from london by skype is a gay said skin a turkey specialist for i guess marketed data and information company that provides country risk analysis would welcome to all if i could start with egg it didn't go to a second round as expected what does that say about public sentiment and confidence well let me begin by saying this in this election we saw the same or pattern in the voting behavior of turkish voters which we have seen in the past elections and referenda and that is people are voting based on their identities rather than policy preferences. rather than the manifestos and the pledges of the competing
8:28 pm
parties. and our laws advantage in this let's say a political landscape is the fact that his identity group is simply demographically bahman and one in the country but. there was a time when our party had a lot more support in elections it had what two thirds of the parliament seats something must have happened here other than simply people doing exactly what they've done before in elections right very much so and so this is the continuation of the same pattern i'll be it some changes here and there but the fundamentals are the same and the change is for example we saw the seven percent drop and vote. since the last election and that could be interpreted for example as they keep these voters. punishing their party for certain things which they're not happy
8:29 pm
about but those votes did not translate into less support for everyone for example which is crucial. as a presidential candidate he got a very high vote and i think this indicates the continuation of the same or voting behavior and the position of this advantage in this picture is the fact that they are divided. if we were to simplify the picture have the seculars on the one hand and the left this curbs on the other who don't necessarily see eye to eye and let me of course and for size that's a big central simplification all right let me bring n.-s. into the discussion so it was a bit of identity politics as eg do you think for those turks who support the one the election was a bit about their desire not to see conservative turks anatolian turks whatever you want to call them pushed back into the shadows by the you know the secular elite so to speak in some of the cities that used to rule turkey. i think.
8:30 pm
the opposition especially the opposition candidate he was able to consolidate his own party is on electorate but he was not really able to convince the. cons are what it waters in the country because of the also the simply because of the historical baggage of the c.h.b. the republican people party because the republican people's party people supported does not have a really a good reputation among the conservative waters plus the also the candidate for the presidency m r i mean he has also in the past many statements for instance against the headscarf the listing of the headscarf one just threw three years ago and suddenly when he was nominated he start to make promises that he is not he doesn't have any issue with the headscarf. in turkey that picket people might use it whenever they want it but this was not really common thing for people so the
8:31 pm
what they were going to have the difficult things going on we can say that. yes but at the same time at the same time turkish waters are not only walking their behavior is not only based on the identity politics at the same time they are also looking at the real issues so why add on has so much support in the population it's not just about. i don't people six but here is a poll he's a politician who has delivered concreate. policies concret development indeed in the country in the past if you look at his political background starting from one thousand nine hundred four so people has. thought that he has delivered his promises there were there was a huge there was a point in the country starting point to from two thousand and two and that's one of the issues right on the other hand also people are looking at the promises of.
8:32 pm
the opposition and they don't see much concret. promises but more like ok course that are they they are they have an abstract policy promises and that was not really common thing for people but at this clearly does seem to have that seven books very very remarks party prove the results let me if i may bring in saleem and say the economy. has improved over the last more than a decade about party rule but for those opposed to other one do you think they fear that the coming period is going to spell one man rule an erosion of democracy. some before i answer your question i would like to correct the record on a bunch of stuff that's been said by my colleagues first of all i do partly agree with i guess point about identity politics but we should not lose sight of the bigger picture here this is a snap election that was held within six weeks almost this was forced to
8:33 pm
deny metal luck shannara party the right to participate in the elections you should remember how the opposition scrambled to find their way to bring auctioneer into the elections so we need to understand the bigger picture here the opposition is facing a sixteen year incumbent this every resource off the state and a sixteen year incumbency at his disposal at the same time i go. to him with a talk about morals policy about the good polity one that didn't do as well as the little party yes the good that didn't do as well it didn't turn out in the end those selling to be such a threat he didn't even manage to secure. you know second place it's the seven it's a seven percent is not a negligible percentage when you think about it that's several million people you need to think about the larger numbers here this spite the sixteen year incumbency
8:34 pm
and a massive efforts to create a new generation of conservative pro-government voters.
