Turkish Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu said that Western media’s manipulations regarding the upcoming presidential and parliamentary elections in Turkiye is a realization of the United States’ plan, Turkish newspaper reported.

In spring of 2023, weeks ahead of Turkey’s presidential election, a number of US regime and European media published their coverage on the upcoming vote, slamming President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as a dictator and tyrant.


On May 3, Soylu said that the USA would attempt a presidential coup during the upcoming election in order to finish what was started in July 2016, when a failed attempt to remove Erdogan from office took place, which Soylu also blamed on the USA.

The minister also accused the USA of being behind the military coups in Turkiye in 1960 and 1971. The plan by the USA intensifies actively. The reason of Western media’s interference is the realization of the USA’s plan.

According to Soylu, the West has infiltrated Turkiye’s political system since 1960. Tayyip Erdogan has eliminated all these Western intrusions.


Now, the West started to push its vision [on Turkiye]. With our victory in the 2023 election, a hundred-year stability will begin. They see it. There is no election a US ambassador would not like to control.

They say, Turkiye’s geopolitical priorities do not meet [Western] interests… Turkiye did not accept the US’s mandate. They have been trying to take revenge for it for 104 years. Everyone is aware of it.

Turkiye’s presidential and parliamentary elections are set to take place on May 14.


Kemal Kilicdaroglu, put forward by a six-party opposition alliance, is considered Erdogan’s main opponent. The list of presidential candidates also includes Muharrem Ince of the Homeland Party and Sinan Ogan of the ATA Alliance.

Results of pre-election polls have not yet revealed a clear favorite in the upcoming election. The second round of the election, which will take place if no candidate gains 50% of votes, is scheduled for May 28, 2023.

Just a minute the Americans always make a song and dance about electoral interference in their elections and how it’s almost an act of war. Yet they have no problem interfering in other countries elections. They even elected their own leader of Venezuela without any election by the people of the country. Turkey know the Americans want THEIR man to win their election.
