Even supporters of the AKP and its far-right Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) allies are unhappy with the economic outlook ahead of local elections on March 31.

Pollster Istanbul Ekonomi Araştırma (IE) spoke to 1,500 people across Turkey last month and found that 56 percent of voters who voted for the AKP last June saw the country’s economy as in “bad” or “very bad” condition. This figure goes up to 84 percent among MHP supporters, according to the survey.
