Trust is very hard to earn and very easy to lose. Turkey has lost trust in President Erdogan. We live in a country where 75% of the youth wishes to migrate and 73% have lost all hope in a better economic tomorrow. Erdogan’s habit of driving political mileage out of tension, conflict and polarization has finally broke the fragile bond of trust between his persona and the Turkish people. Sensing the changing mood, he now promises reforms. He doesn’t need to promise. Sine he is THE STATE, he can start them asap. But, he won’t. Because reform in Turkey means “Erdogan sacrificing a part of his privileges”. Erdogan, prosperity and development have become oxymorons. The best reform he can undertake is to retire.
