Presidential Elections in Turkey

Today the polls opened in Turkey for voting in the next president. Current ruling president of Turkey, Tayyip Erdogan, has been ruling a single-party, the AK Party, for 12 years. Since 2002, he has slowly shifted the Turkish political sphere. During his rule, he has increasingly become more intolerant, autocratic, and nationalist. He has made several anti-Semitic remarks and has not proved to be a reliable peace partner with Israel. He aims to gain a majority power in this election, which will allow him to change the constitution and put more power in his own hands. Please pray for the elections today. God is the one who establishes government and authorities. Pray that His will will be done in Turkey for the next generation to come.

“There is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.” (Romans 13:1b)
