Turkey's presidential and parliamentary elections are less than two weeks away, with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan facing unprecedented challenges that could end his two-decade rule. Polls predict a record voter turnout and a tight race between Erdogan and the main opposition candidate Kemal Kilicdaroglu. Turkey's demographics are also expected to play a role, with most of the provinces struck by the February earthquake being strongholds of Erdogan and his AK Party. At least 1 million voters in quake-stricken zones are expected not to vote this year due to displacement. Even if Kilicdaroglu wins the election, some analysts say Erdogan may not hand over power to his successor without a struggle.
