Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s health has been a major issue in Turkish politics. Now the focus of public conversations is shifting towards his death.
In the late hours of Nov 2, and into the early hours of Nov. 3, rumors of his death took over social media platforms. After canceling his visit to Glasgow, Erdogan’s daily public schedule was cleaned of all meetings. Although this was temporary, the screenshots of the website spread like wildfire on social media. Nov 3, 2002, is the day that AKP came to power, so each year the anniversary is commemorated with lavish receptions.
