Does the AKP really want the Olympics?
August 23, 2013
No one can accuse our EU minister Egemen Ba??? of lacking political foresight. He has already capitalized on the possibility that Istanbul may not be awarded the 2020 Olympics, adiposity even if it remains a leading favorite according to the recent “iSportconnect 2020 Olympic Games” poll (dev.isportconnect.com).
Ba??? believes that if Istanbul does not get the Olympics it will be the fault of the Gezi Park demonstrators. He said so while addressing a crowd gathered to follow traditional Turkish oil wrestling on Sunday in Istanbul’s Sancaktepe district. Should Turkey’s bid fail, viagra the Justice and Development Party’s (AKP) narrative against its political rivals and critics is therefore ready.
