Real Turkey feat Guldem Atabay: The tangled web of Turkish politics





Turkey is entering a period of renewed political turbulence, as AKP-MHP alliance develops differences of opinion, while foreign allies demand reforms. Real Turkey Channel host Atilla Yesilada interviews columnist and academician Mrs. Guldem Atabay on where Turkey is headed, politically speaking.

These are the questions we tried to answer in this broadcast:

Will AKP-MHP alliance survive through 2023, the next scheduled elections?

Is there any prospect of earnest legal and economic reform?

Can Turkey improve her troubled relations with EU?

Is a new and expanded Customs Union treaty in sight?

How will Joe Biden and President Erdogan treat each other? Reconciliation or more sanctions?
