This outrageous decision highlights how Erdogan’s is drifting towards a dictatorship. Under such leadership, accession talks are impossible. Full support to the Turkish people protesting for their democratic rights and for a free and open Turkey!
Turkey’s main opposition accused authorities of “plain dictatorship” after officials ordered a re-run of elections in Istanbul where President Tayyip Erdogan's party suffered a surprise defeat.

EU politicians consider they have a moral superiority over Turkey which allows to give lessons of democracy to them. Meanwhile Spain abuse over is ignored and silenced. Our leaders are still in prison because they let citizens vote. Not in Turkey but in the EU.

Imagine re-running a vote that doesn't go the ruling party's way. Unthinkable.

This is misleading: 1: Maastricht was altered (Edinborough Treaty) for Denmark. 2: Denmark got a Euro opt out. 3: This was decided because of the incredibly low turnout. 4: Result accepted. 5/6: Result accepted. The EU Constitution is no more because of this.

In Ireland: Nice Treaty was run twice for you. Lisbon Treaty was run twice for you. In UK: Brexit vote is being sabotaged for you. But now that it's happening in Turkey, it's an undemocratic dictatorship. 🤔

You have no credibility whatsoever regarding international relations after supporting a coup against the democratically elected president of . You and Guaido are just a pair of US lackeys. You are the last person in the world who can lecture on democracy.
