COMMENTARY: Is Turkey heading for snap elections

After all, President Erdogan has three more years in the office and recent polls are not kind to him.  The broadcast points to two newly-founded off-shoots from AK Party, namely DEVA and Future Parties, which are gradually rising in the polls.  It also attempts to understand Erdogan’s grand strategy.
