Erdoğan narrowly wins Turkish election in “climate of fear” (Amnesty), assuming quasi-dictatorial powers

A pro-government television station accidentally aired election “results” 3 days before the polls ..showing the 53 % that Erdoğan “achieved”, and indeed always has achieved in elections and the presidential-powers referendum.

This now places authoritarian “strongmen” in power after elections in Russia, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Austria and Serbia, with other democratic nations clearly inclining to despotism too. Democracy is under threat as never before. …Just at the time the tech world is developing – unregulated – the elements of a perfect infrastructure for endless police states.
