EFD Senior Policy Advisor Dr. Demir Murat Seyrek is featured in the Belgian online newspaper EU Today, commenting on the Turkish general election that was held on 1 November 2015. As highlighted in the article, "in an overview of the outcome of the election" Dr Seyrek states that "Turkish voters 'chose stability over fundamental rights and freedoms'". Moreover, according to Dr Seyrek, the outcome of the election is a demonstration of the "'weak and divided' nature of Turkey’s opposition parties and their inability to provide a 'credible' alternative to the AKP", Turkey's ruling Justice and Development Party.
