Turkey’s Erdogan more dangerous than Covid, says former ally

Erdogan’s dictatorial ideologies are the greatest threat to Europe and the world says ally turned oppositionist Ahmet Davutoglu

Mr Davutoglu said that the greatest danger to Europe and the world is the culture of despotism, which has spread by populist leaders such as Mr Erdogan. “The criterion for the tribal-state is“As long our people are suffering, and there is deep corruption, and the dignity of our country is insulted abroad, we will keep calling for early elections,” the former head of Mr Erdogan’s ruling AK party said.

The Turkish opposition leader also criticised the presidential system of government implemented in 2016 by Mr Erdogan to consolidate more power.

Mr Davutoglu said the country needed to return to a parliamentary system because the current system only produces crises.

He reiterated his demand for early elections, which the opposition began promoting in Turkey at the beginning of October.

Mr Davutoglu served as prime minister to Mr Erdogan between 2014 and 2016 before breaking away from the AK party and establishing a rival political movement to challenge the longtime Turkish leader.
