Turkish professor of sociology and columnist Ayhan Aktar said that the nationalistic policies supported by President Recep Tayyip Edorgan in the last two years, with operations in Afri and Qandil, and his negative stance towards western countries, created a wave of nationalism in the country.
In comments to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency, the professor said that this is a wave that fell on top of the president, resulting in a loss of his majority in parliament and forcing him to work with the nationalist party of Bahceli.
The professor added that this development “will amount to a difficulty in the administration of the country.”
“Those celebrating on the streets are nationalists. Supporters of the Justice and Development Party are behaving like they won but they can’t be happy,” he said.
