E73: A political earthquake?

Disaster struck Turkey and Syria this month when a devastating earthquake caused over 48,000 deaths, with the toll still climbing.

The Turkish government’s emergency response has been heavily criticised, with many arguing that the devastating number of casualties has a lot to do with rampant corruption and authoritarianism of Erdogan’s regime – widespread graft in the construction industry leading to unsafe buildings, political appointees with no expertise leading chaotic relief operations, and the gutting of civil society organisations hampering humanitarian efforts in Kurdish areas in particular.

With all this happening just months before a crucial presidential election, what’s the outlook for Turkey, and what should European progressives’ take on it be?
