The cracks within the ruling AKP government are increasing now that the general elections are approaching.
First, President Tayyip Erdoğan and the AKP government spokesman Bülent Arınç fell out, causing the cracks within the party to be exposed prior to the upcoming general elections which are believed to be vital for the Justice and Development Party.
Rumour has it that Tayyip Erdoğan insists on making the MP list of his party (Justice and Development Party), and inserting his team into the parliament. However, most of the people he supports have failed in the interviews. Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu is reportedly trying to come up with a list that Erdoğan would not reject.
