Turkey Elections: Regional challenges ahead for Ankara

Turkey will vote for a President and new MP's on Sunday. Opposition candidates say the ruling party called elections now and not in 2019 as planned because it is worried about Turkey's economy and fear it could worsen. But the Government says the main reason it's called early elections is to effectively deal with the many national security challenges it faces. Hasan Abdullah takes a look at what those challenges are and what President Erdogan plans to do if re-elected on Sunday.
