Debate – Deepening Division (5.5.2016)
“I feel no reproach, anger or resentment against anyone. No-one
heard, or will ever hear, a single word from my mouth, from my
tongue or my mind against our president.” Those may be the words
of Turkish Prime Minister Davutoglu, but President Erdogan pushing
him aside is evidence of deepening division that exist between them.
Speculation abounds as to which policies became the nail in
Davutoglu’s coffin. Could it be Turkey’s policy of “zero
problems with neighbors” morphing into the opposite? Could it be
the EU-Turkey refugee deal? Or the growing powers of president
vis-à-vis those of the prime minister that have been curtailed. The
list is endless, but one thing is certain: This “palace coup” as
dubbed by an opposition leader, will strengthen Erdogan’s hand.
That & more in this debate.
