ANKARA, May 8 (Reuters) - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan accused the opposition on Monday of provoking disorder and siding with terrorists, without providing evidence, in a fiery speech days before close and increasingly fractious elections. Opinion polls suggest Erdogan faces the biggest electoral challenge of his career in presidential and parliamentary votes due on May 14. The following day, on the other side of Turkey during a rally in the western town of Edirne, Erdogan accused the opposition of being "pro-LGBT" and "siding with terrorists". "They (the opposition) are trying to defame our cities shamelessly by making a scene with their own provocations," Erdogan said, without making direct reference to the events in Erzurum. Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu also accused the opposition of inciting the violence in Erzurum.

"I will pick you up and we will leave," Havva told her daughter. On Tuesday, Reuters saw Havva with Mehmet and her two daughters just outside Antakya city centre, boarding a bus that would take them to Edirne free of charge. Murat Vural, a 47-year-old blacksmith, who was at the camp on Monday night, likened the earthquake to religious stories about Antakya.

The case against the HDP, Turkey's third-biggest party, comes ahead of elections that pose the biggest test for President Tayyip Erdogan's 20 years in power. Polls show he and his ruling AK Party could lose, especially if the HDP cooperates with an opposition alliance. Earlier this month, the court froze the HDP's bank accounts holding Treasury aid during the course of the trial. But it remains unclear when the court will deliver its final ruling on the party closure case.

Turkey's constitutional court opened the case against the HDP in 2021, drawing strong criticism from Ankara's Western allies. "Even if Erdogan puts pressure on voters, even if he tries to use tricks, he cannot avoid defeat," Demirtas said. 'WE ARE THE PEOPLE'Ahead of the elections, Demirtas' Twitter account has issued daily political messages to its more than 2 million followers. The party currently plans to propose its own presidential candidate, but Demirtas did not rule out backing a joint opposition candidate against Erdogan.
Marile orașe din Turcia ar putea rămâne fără apă în următoarele luni, iar Istanbul mai are apă pentru doar 45 de zile, scrie The Guardian. Primarul din Ankara, Mansur Yavaş, a anunțat luna aceasta că orașul său mai are apă pentru încă 110 zile în baraje și rezervoare. Cu toate acestea, după câștigarea alegerilor, administrația sa a realizat că problemele apărute în timpul construcțiilor vor întârzia proiectul mai mulți ani. Dacă nu plouă în Melen nu putem aduce apă de acolo", a declarat İmamoğlu. În Izmir, autoritățile locale se pregătesc împotriva lipsei de apă săpând peste 100 de puțuri noi, reciclând apele uzate și reparând conductele vechi pentru a reduce pierderile.

Primarul din Ankara, Mansur Yavaş, a anunțat luna aceasta că orașul său mai are apă pentru încă 110 zile în baraje și rezervoare. „În loc să se concentreze pe măsuri care să mențină cererea de apă sub control, Turcia insistă să-și extindă rezerva de apă construind baraje. Turcia a construit sute de baraje în ultimii 20 de ani”, a declarat Dr. Akgün İlhan, expert în administrarea apelor la Centrul pentru politici din Istanbul. Turcia a prioritizat de mult timp dezvoltarea economică în dauna îngrijirii mediului înconjurător. Dacă nu plouă în Melen nu putem aduce apă de acolo”, a declarat İmamoğlu.
