Turkey: Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu supports country’s return to the Eurovision Song Contest!

In Turkey. some days ago, the six parties which constitute the main country’s political opposition announced that their leader is going to be Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, who is already the leader of the Republican People’s Party (CHP). That specific party was founded by Kemal Ataturk himself approximately 100 years ago.

According to the recent exit polls which took place in Turkey, Kılıçdaroğlu seems to be the odds-on favourite to win the elections, since his political beliefs are more acceptable by the majority of the Turkish people and more friendly towards the West World, in contrast to Erdoğan’s. Driven by those data, there are a lots of people who actually believe that Kılıçdaroğlu’s policy could mark the possible return of Turkey in the contest.

Turkey’s Republican People’s Party can be characterized by its oppostition towards the old, traditional islamic beliefs that are supported by Erdoğan’s current policy and system of governance. Kılıçdaroğlu himself has mentioned multiple times during these last months that if he actually wins in Turkey’s elections on May 14th, he will be a trustworthy member between Turkey and West’s discussions for a much better cooperative future and that his primary goal will be the restoration between Turkey and West World’s policies.

It is a shame for Turkey to withdraw from Eurovision

Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu commented also on Turkey’s decision to withdraw from the Eurovision Song Contest, under Erdoğan’s rule in 2013, describing it as a shameful decision.

It is a shame for Turkey to withdraw from Eurovision. Our artists will go there, sing their songs and folk songs. Countries will vote, someone will win. This is a competition. Artists become even more popular by taking part in international competitions and by winning awards. That’s the proper form of a foreign policy.

To make a long story short, Turkey’s elections in spring seem to be of high importance regarding not only the serious political decisions for the people but also the country’s possible return in the Eurovision Song Contest.

Let’s keep in mind that Turkey last took part in 2012 in Baku, Azerbaijan, represented by Can Bonomo singing “Love Me Back” which came seventh at the end of the Grand Final. Take a look:
