I’ve argued since the rigged referendum that  AKP’s irreversible decline had started.  This article provides support for my view:   “AK love is 16 years old,” they declared, using the acronym for the party that has dominated Turkish politics for all but a year of its life. But the fear in the presidential palace is that, after a decade and a half in power, the passion has gone out of the romance between the party and its supporters.
