LOCAL NEWS

  • Local analyst warns that the recent decision by Turkey’s Supreme Court of Appeals to uphold three separate prison terms for CHP Chair Kaftancioglu is the start of a fresh crackdown on the opposition ahead of the 2023 elections and even the postponement/cancellation of the vote in the worst case scenario.

  • Turkish contractors are calling for Treasury lands to be given to contractors at lower costs, which they estimate would decrease house prices by 30%. – Sabah
  • “Early booking discounts of up to 50% have created a significant increase in demand among tourists as Turkey seeks to revive its tourism season with the goal of $35bn in revenue. Especially in the period up to May, there was a 250% increase in early bookings,” Onur Otrus, CEO of Tatilbudur.com, said – Dunya
