Unlike AKP President Erdogan, citizens believe that the economic situation in Turkey is worse than in Europe.

Issues related to the agenda were discussed in the week 2022/14, Turkey Monitor, prepared by Aksoy Research. The view that Turkey’s economy is poorly managed is also dominant among AKP and MHP voters. People in the study were asked about the most important problem they had recently encountered. When the open-ended responses were analyzed with the word analysis method, economic concerns were found to be the most important issue on voters’ agendas.

The rate of those who said that the economic situation had deteriorated due to the intervention of foreign powers in the economy was 23.3%.

The increase in transport, which was approved by the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality Council, was another topic on the agenda. In the statement made by the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality, it was pointed out that transportation has increased due to rising fuel costs.
