President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan thanked Sinan Oğan for his endorsement in Türkiye’s upcoming runoff elections on Sunday, as he rejected claims of bargaining to secure his support.
“We had talks with Mr. Oğan here in my office and today he announced that he would support me and the People’s Alliance. I thank him on behalf of myself and my party,” the president told a live broadcast on TRT Haber late Monday.
