9:06 am
voters in germany supported the a k p that's a much higher percentage than in turkey itself the w.'s she'll never gets was out in berlin to test the political temperature. tickets electing campaigning in a german capital is good advice and its friends are canvassing for turkey's pro kurdish party this is for you but this is for the election in turkey were against terror one they didn't do that was against everyone ok i'll take one. is your left because of president add on he's very concerned about politics in his home country. i've been in germany for six years. and many of my friends and my entire family are still there to free them and they're dissatisfied and we have to change it or topple this government. and
9:07 am
that's why we're working from germany to support those who stand for democracy in turkey. but not everyone here is against and on these women are complaining for the turkish president and his a.k.p. party they don't like speaking to the german press and initially brushed me off as we are campaigning for the a.k.p. if you want we can take a vote by card on the. party colleagues from the age c.p.c. to present after take a piece of quarters as a provocation then shout added one is that terrorist added one is a murderer. a heated answer comes right back the passer by says you are the real murderous she's doing the right thing with you you don't sue if it i'm happy that type agawam makes this a little. little bit which is good tries to defuse deceit to a certain he doesn't like these public disputes with the a.k.p.
9:08 am
supporters these guys it shouldn't insult but did you hear what they said that yes i think you. know they are insulting you. try to stay cool don't do the same thing as they do. as the elect instant. tensions are running high here imbalanced german take his community people are divided by one simple question are you for or against type add on. they live in germany but they are more fired up about politics in turkey to take a piece of poor to say it's only natural this is the turkey is our real homeland our families live there and we're doing this work here for them with god's help. this year is convinced there is more to it than that. if they have an identity problem because they've had a lot of bad experiences. that's why they want to vote for turkey and why so
9:09 am
many support the a k p p. but not everybody does. and it's doing their own support. is helping to mobilize by canvassing for the h d p campaigning in berlin against the president but. it. is reporting there from berlin well let's cross over to the w.'s chief political editor mckay there standing by our parliamentary studios michela as we just saw in the last election around sixty percent of turkish voters here in germany cast their ballots for a.k.p. can we expect a similar result. well who am i to predict election results but certainly added one is seen as the representation also of turkish identity here in germany and this is really what differentiates the electorate spock home in turkey itself from those of one point four million turks here in germany who can vote and it
9:10 am
seems to be part of this ex-pat syndrome that you then vote for your own country add one very much last time try to make that referendum that we saw here on the constitution certainly about whether you are on the side of turkey or whether you're on the side of germany so it became almost a vote on national identity as well and we would expect the campaigning to also go along those lines this time around having said that out of one is by no means as sure as he was last time to get elected it appears that this seems to be a much more united front amongst opposition parties so in effect this will probably mean that those voters have brought some three million will matter even more than last time so do you have any idea how influential turkish voters
9:11 am
are in germany there and what any idea what impact they might have on this election what they could potentially tip the balance i mean in back in turkey the economic data is going downhill we saw a twenty percent for in the value of the turkish lira there in recent months so a lot more of a case to answer for on the side of. out of one and if this becomes very narrow if it becomes a very narrow question whether this will go into the second round really versus the border could certainly tip the balance that germany has not allowed turkish politicians to campaign in this country has that perhaps worked against. well this seems to be the narrative here and one says either you're with me you're with turkey or you're against me the whole question of appearances of turkish
9:12 am
politicians here in germany became hugely controversial also during that referendum that was is now a ban ahead of an election and just a couple of weeks ago we saw turkey's foreign minister here for a commemoration ceremony for the victims of a neo nazi attacks who were of turkish descent here and many there this was a message of reconciliation he managed to keep politics in the domestic politics out of this now we don't expect there to be any such appearances but we've already seen an election campaign event also for german voters take place in bosnia interestingly enough so certainly that campaign is in full swing for all those potentially influential votes also here and. the killer thank you w.'s chief political editor make it across. well as turkish voters are heading to the polls the turkish lira is going south florida yet interesting enough terry the turkish
