An unpredictable politician, Bahceli is once again at the center of power politics. What makes him so significant?
Turkey's political discourse has markedly changed from previous elections. The need to gather a popular majority for a presidential candidate is forcing parties to broaden their appeal with more inclusive messaging.
With election activities in full swing, party flags, posters and campaign tents of political parties across Istanbul portray a contentious political atmosphere ahead of Turkey's upcoming polls.
Turks will go to the polls on June 24 to decide their future president, who will govern for the next five years. Members of the parliament will be elected, too. Ahead of the elections we take a close look at the main presidential candidates.
