It is a unique case of a military high command resigning to protest repression by a civilian government!Needless to say, for the European Parliament’s Turkey rapporteur Ria Oomen-Ruijten, these developments only proved that “Turkey is becoming more democratic.” Unfortunately, the exact opposite is what’s happening.Even the soccer industry is now being subordinated to the central government, in large part because it is extraordinarily valuable.If franchises can be given to government supporters as rewards, kick back money to the ruling party, and covertly encourage fans to support the regime’s program that would be worth a tremendous amount in political and financial power.Thus the ultimate irony: Erdogan was granted dictatorial powers in the name of democratization.In addition, the Turkish police force, YÖK (Higher Education Board), Diyanet (Presidency of Religious Affairs), and the Turkish Central Bank among numerous other institutions are now controlled by the governing party, its cronies, and supporters.They would have the party link this overarching theme to policies promising relief and opportunity to middle-class voters, especially women who are already more inclined toward the Democrats.
