I think that even the election Law was passed for a similar purpose. Now the main problem is: if the People’s Alliance candidate is Mr. Erdogan, I haven’t heard from Mr. Erdogan, with the exception of Mr. Bahçeli, say ‘I am the candidate.’” he said.
MANSUR YAVAS STATEMENT: WE ARE PROUD TO BE NOMINATED
When asked if they had a candidate, Akşener replied:
“We were at this table, ‘Is it this or that presidential candidate?’ We never talked. We just talked about the attitude we should have. Friends have already shared it. We haven’t talked about anything other than that. But when you look at the event in terms of names that came out, one can only be proud that Mr. Yavaş’s name was mentioned. It is really a situation of pride because Mr. Yavaş is an elected representative of the People’s Republican Party, but it is also a person supported by IYI party. Therefore, we are only proud of his good service, popularity and good reputation. It will certainly not cause fitna including other names to oppose each other. He will be the candidate of the Alliance.
“WE MUST GET THE MAJORITY IN PARLIAMENT”
Expressing that they should win the presidential election, Akşener said, “Of course, we should win the presidential election, of course, we should consider it as the components of this 6-man table, but at the same time, we should obtain a majority in Parliament. used the expression.

THE WORDS OF KARAMOLLAOĞLU

“The so-called alliance within the alliance of Temel Bey, that is to say” Political parties can also enter this circle separately, there is no problem with the presidential candidacy, we we will support”. He says, but he did not mention their names in terms of maximizing votes, but we can still form a union without breaking with this alliance, which means that all the lists of a political party will be elected, whoever they are. That’s what Temel Bey said. That’s a rational way of thinking. Question “We have to win the presidency, and secondly, we have to win the majority in parliament. Why did I announce in September that I would not be a candidate for the Presidency? Here, so that our constituents, our nation and our friends at this table of six can listen to me without prejudice.
Akşener added that they aspire to be Prime Minister with the appreciation of the nation.
