Authorities in the German city of Hanover, located in the northern German state of Lower Saxony, banned the pro-Erdogan regime rallies on Thursday amid the tensions between the two countries.
The city’s major Stefan Schostok said "We wish to be clear: we simply don’t want any of such rallies in our in our city."
He also said the Union of European Turkish Democrats, on behalf of Erdogan's Justice and Development Party (AKP), submitted a request for the rally, saying it was just an internal and a local meeting.
It later turned out that the vice president of Erdogan's AKP party, Mohammed Mehdi Eker, was supposed to deliver a speech at the rally.This is what ultimately prompted the city’s administration to take measures.
Erdogan regime is currently at odds with several European countries, especially the Netherlands after the latter barred two Turkish government ministers from attending pro-Erdogan regime rallies due to safety concerns.
