​​​​​​Turkey’s political direction is up for debate, following the August Presidential elections. Having gone from domestic stability to political upheaval, from ‘zero problems with neighbours’ to being drawn into escalating regional conflicts, the new president is not short of challenges. Simultaneously, we may be seeing a new concentration of power in the hands of the President. Now that we know who shall fill the post, what should we be expecting?
