Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdogan faces a new challenge in the form a newly founded nationalist party. Meral Aksener, the leader of the “Good party” aspires to top Erdogan in the presidential election in 2019. Many, in Turkey and abroad, believe that she is the only politician that could beat Erdogan. But what are her chances? How firm is Erdogan’s grip, both on state power and on the electorate? And what are the prospects of Turkish democracy if the alternative to the authoritarian Islamic right is a Turkish nationalist right?
