ANKARA (Al Jazeera) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s top rival in the 2018 election, Muharrem Ince, has announced the formation of a new party, Memleket Partisi (Homeland Party), which he plans to lead in the next campaign expected to be held in June 2023.
Ince represented the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) when he picked up 30.6 percent of the vote against Erdogan’s 52.6 in Turkey’s last national polls held in 2018. He proved to be a powerful orator who built up a solid support base despite the snap polls being announced just months in advance about three years ago.
