The People’s Alliance, made up of the AKP and the Nationalist Movement Party, had previously announced that incumbent President Recep Tayyip Erdogan would be the alliance’s presidential candidate in the upcoming elections. It is not yet clear who will be the presidential candidate of the Alliance of the Nation, also known as the “6 Tables”, which consists of the Republican People’s Party, the Good Party, the Happy Party, the Democratic Party, the Future Party and the Virgo Party. In addition, the Alliance of Nations shared with the public the “Memorandum of Understanding on Common Policy”, which will be the main axis of the presidential candidate’s campaign manifesto and government program, at a meeting with wide participation recently.

The text, described by the parties in the Alliance of Nations as a “recipe for crisis relief,” includes 9 main headings, 75 subheadings and more than 2,300 promises. The text, which includes pledges in areas ranging from public administration to the economy, from foreign policy to education, aims to keep the parties in the alliance in unity of discourse and action throughout the election period.

Promises such as lowering the electoral threshold to 3 percent, electing a president once every 7 years, lowering the state aid threshold to 1 percent, and abolishing several bar associations indicate that important changes will take place in the electoral system if there is a change of government. On the other hand, promises such as the abolition of the Welfare Fund and presidential political committees, the introduction of mandatory parliamentary clearance for lawsuits relating to the closure of political parties, and the creation of the Strategy and Planning Organization were brought to the attention of the Oztrak public.

Chanakci said that if the National Alliance came to power, inflation would fall to single digits within two years and per capita income would double within five years. In addition, the Common Policy Memorandum of Understanding contains wonderful promises of “savings” under the heading “Savings”.
