Abdulkadir Selvi, a writer for the Hurriyat newspaper, said there had been a discussion between Kamal Kilikdaroglu and Meral Aksener about the presidency and the prime minister’s post. Kılıçdaroğlu wanted to be the presidential candidate, but by pressing his name on the 6-party table before deciding on the election, he thought it would create a rift, Selvi said. Table together, and his second goal is to be the joint president of the 6-piece table. Come out as a candidate, “he said. Saying that he had met with Iyi party sources, Selvi said:
“There has been significant progress on the opposition front with the presidential candidacy.
At the present stage, there is a dilemma as to whether the candidature for the presidency is more than one candidate or a single / joint candidate.
This is a very important idea. This is a very critical step. In a sense, it is a matter of the existence or non-existence of opponents. As Shakespeare put it, “To be or not to be, that’s the question!” He said.
This has become an important issue.
Because the CHP is of the opinion that ‘if we field more than one candidate, we will lose the election, but if we field a common candidate, we will win the election’.
Kılıçdaroğlu and Akşener, the two leaders, will untie this knot.
Kilichdaroglu will not announce
A party supporting Kılıçdaroğlu in the CHP argues that it would be useful to announce Kılıçdaroğlu’s candidacy before Eid-ul-Adha.
It has two purposes.
1- They believe that early elections will be held in November.
2- They want the names of Ekrem İmamoğlu and Mansur Yavaş to be dropped altogether and the people to be accustomed to the name Kılıçdaroğlu at this time.
Since the 6-way table will meet on July 3, hosted by Meral Aksener, they argue that Kılıçdarooglu should propose his candidacy to the leaders that day. But Kılıçdaroğlu is not of that opinion.
Will not announce candidacy
Kılıçdarooglu is very determined about his candidacy for the presidency. As never before. He is very optimistic because the names of Imamolu and Yavas are in the background. However, he thinks that putting his name on the table without the decision of the election will create a rift. Kılıçdaroğlu’s primary goal is to bring the 6-party table together, and his second goal is to be the joint presidential candidate of the 6-party table. Kılıçdarooglu will not bring his candidacy for the presidency at the July 3 dinner. When the election is decided and a table of 6 people is gathered to decide the presidential candidate, it aims to sit at the table as the CHP candidate. Of course, this time the condition will improve. However, he will take his demand further.
The wind often changes direction when it comes to presidential candidates. Kılıçdaroğlu is taking a step, strengthening the joint candidate formula. A message came from the IYI party, this time the needle has turned towards more than one candidate. This will continue until a decision is made from the 6-way table. Because the presidential candidates are moving towards each other.
There is a consensus in the 6-party table, especially the presidential candidate of the IYI party, Kılıçdaroğlu CHP. However, they are not sure if they can win the election with Kılıçdaroğlu. If they decide that they cannot win the election with Kılıçdaroğlu, then the election will be held with more than one candidate.
Suicide of multiple candidates
The issue of multiple candidates in CHP has turned into a nightmare. “Multiple candidates will commit suicide,” they say “It simply came to our notice then. “We believe that Erdogan will win if there are more than one candidate. That is why they are pushing for a joint presidential candidate.”
The predominance of an opinion in this regard in CHP does not mean that the formula of multiple candidates has been completely rejected.
According to the Common Candidate Formula, there are still opportunities for multiple candidate options.
Because if the 6-party table thinks that the election cannot be won with Kılıçdaroğlu, if the smaller parties cannot guarantee the list required to enter Parliament, if they do not want to carry the CHP’s luggage for ideological reasons, if any. A belief that the IYI party’s vote share will decrease that the CHP presidential candidate will be present in the election will increase the chances of multiple candidates.
And of course, there is the Ekarem Imamoglu factor. The West, especially the United States, believes that Kılıçdaroğlu will not win the election and that if Imamoglu is elected, they will oust Erdogan. This is why journalists close to them write articles to remind them of their nightmares if he is an ally if he loses the election. Nevertheless, if Kılıçdaroğlu does not take a step back, they are expected to put more than one candidate’s card on the table this time.
Bargaining will untie that knot
Will there be more than one candidate or will there be an election with the same presidential candidate? Will Kılıçdaroğlu be the joint candidate or will ğmamoğlu or Akşener be the presidential candidate and will there be multiple candidates in the first round?
Meral Akşener will untie this knot.
Will Axena, who defeated Abdullah Gul’s joint presidential candidacy in the June 24, 2018 election, confirm that Kilisdaroglu will be the joint presidential candidate in this election?
Kilicdaroglu is the prime minister of President Axena
Aksenar announced that he was not running for president, but wanted to be prime minister. The CHP said in a statement that “K আকlıçdaroğlu must be president in order for Akenar to be prime minister.” It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. I believe Erdogan will be elected president. But I would like to inform the assessment made on the Kılıçdaroğlu front.
Prime Minister of Aksenar
Aksenar announced that he wanted to be prime minister. But Aksener’s path to becoming prime minister is through Kilikdaroglu. In order for Aksener to become prime minister, Kilisdaroglu must be president. The person elected as president can disrupt the PM’s process or spread it over time, but on the contrary, it can prepare and accelerate the model. Whom does Axena believe in such an unfortunate moment, Kılıçdaroğlu or İmamoğlu? If Imamoglu is elected, he will not want to share his power. That would not pave the way for Aksener to become prime minister. But Kılıçdaroğlu manages this process. That’s why Kilikdaroglu should be president.
Again, it is a matter of bargaining
Kılıçdarooglu is taking a new step every day in his presidential candidacy. He acquires a new position every day. I’m meeting the IYI party. They are also aware that Kılıçdaroğlu is determined to run for president. “It is now certain that Kılıçdarooglu will be the CHP candidate,” they said But so far, no support for Kılıçdaroğlu has been received from Aksenar. When I asked him about the situation, he said, “There is a discussion going on between Kılıçdaroğlu and Akşener about the position of President and Prime Minister. Axena is not expected to express a positive or negative opinion before the end of this bargain.”
Situation in Table 6
The two major parties in the 6-party table are the CHP and the IYI party. The mood of the CHP is that if Akşener and İmamoğlu come to an agreement, the other smaller parties will not object to the joint candidate. It doesn’t matter if you object.
It is, of course, politics. Each of the 6-tables has a separate account. Ali Babachan wants to be the presidential candidate. After Davutoglu entered Parliament. Gultekin Wisal surrendered to Kilikdaroglu. On the other hand, Temel Karamollahu could not make any progress as he could not form a third alliance.
So everyone’s eyes are on Aksener.
Axena owns the gold part of the 6-fold table. ”
