Well I just hope the bars are open     ;)
Not officially: not while the polls are open. I expect it will be like Wales on Sundays when the country was "dry"; front doors closed, back doors open (for those in the know).

Interesting read from Serkan Demirtaş in the HDN today.

"Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) leader Devlet Bahçeli has recently been making some interesting but worrying statements.

One such statement was his demand from the Interior Ministry to probe the Fethullahist Terror Organization’s (FETÖ) link with more than 250,000 people who signed a petition to nominate iYi (Good) Party leader Meral Akşener as a candidate for the presidential elections.
"

Cracks beginning to appear in the MHP/AKP alliance perhaps, well worth a read:

Last week Bahceli was demanding the release of (patriotic) murderers. Here are two of them: "High-profile Turkish mafia leader Çakıcı ... currently in Bolu Prison, serving a sentence for instigating the murder of his ex-wife Nuriye Uğur Kılıç. He is also convicted of several crimes including organizing and leading a crime syndicate for the purpose of generating profit, instigating murder, instigating injury, and insulting President Erdoğan [and] "Kürşat Yılmaz was a member of Nationalist Youth Organization (ÜGD) before the 1980 coup. Extradited to Turkey in 1999, he has been since then in prison for instigating the murder of former Kuşadası Mayor Lütfi Suyolcu".

“How just and fair is it to leave these brothers of ours rotting behind walls?” Bahçeli said.

Erdogan turned down this demand.
