Erdogan Seeks Snap Elections

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Erdogan is calling for snap elections and condemned a constitutional court ruling that annulled a recent presidential vote as a “bullet fired at democracy.” Erdogan insisted his party was committed to secularism. He also urged respect for differences in an apparent reference to objections raised against foreign minister Gul’s wife who wears a headscarf. Many secularists claim her desire to wear this head covering is a threat to the Turkish secular state.
