Election investment rails: Congresses are held in the AK Party and CHP these days. It is impossible not to be surprised when the ruling and the opposition watch the congresses of these two parties. Although it has been in power for three terms, the AK Party's congresses are more dynamic and exciting.
It is a smart strategy to reflect this dynamism to the local elections to be held in October 2013 without cooling it down… Thus, the election activities will be withdrawn to summer months.
This strategy also overlaps with the end of massive infrastructure investments in major cities, especially in Istanbul.
It is worth mentioning a few. The century-old dream Marmaray line of Istanbul ends in October 2013. On that date KadıköyIt will be possible to travel from Anatolia to Europe under the Bosphorus by train.
Kadıköy-Kartal metro is coming into service at the end of this year.
The high-speed train reaches Istanbul Pendik from Ankara.
In Ankara, Başkentray comes to life between Sincan and Kayaş. The new modern train station with hotels and shopping centers is being finished.
In Izmir, Egeray runs from east to west and even reaches Torbalı. Again in 2013, for the first time, DDY launches a luxury bus quality domestic train set. Apart from other projects, the introduction of the rail system in terms of transportation will create great relief in cities.
This time as well as the couples way will affect the iron rails that make life easier.
The CHP-MHP and BDP, who are in opposition to this election, may lose some local power in their hands.
This will enable the AK Party to enter the presidential elections in 2014 more easily. Well, is the opposition and especially the CHP prepared for this process?
Let's just say this: CHP has 12 municipalities in Istanbul. If the CHP goes like this and there is no change in politics, it will return to the 2004 level… In other words, 4 or 5 municipalities remain.
The picture looks like this when we look at politics from a strategic and mathematical perspective… But momentary developments can also affect politics. A development in the global world, a step to be taken in the Kurdish issue can either raise the process or reverse it.
