The elections in Turkey could also be decided in Germany. On the way with Mazlum Karagöz and Mehtap Erol, who are fighting from Berlin for an end to Erdoğan.
This could now be the perfect showdown: in the courtyard of the Turkish Consulate General in Berlin there are twelve containers with ballot boxes. Around them are election observers from numerous Turkish parties: men from the AKP, Erdoğan’s party. Women and men from the Social Democratic CHP of his challenger, Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu. Men and women of the left-green Yeşil Sol Parti, under whose umbrella the Kurdish HDP is also fighting. Men from the MHP, the right-wing extremists who are in common with Erdoğan.
