Turkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan, on his local elections rally in Turkish south eastern city of Siirt, accused the opposition parties and Gulen movement of encouraging violence on the streets.
Erdogan stated that since the opposition parties are not able to defeat him in the polls, they will try to be provocative on the streets.
Erdogan implied that his popular support will be tested in these local elections without the support of the Gulen movement as in the past.
He marked the upcoming local elections as being "the most significant election in Turkish democracy history" and he asked for the support of the people of Siirt for the AK party in the upcoming elections.
Erdogan critiziced the current Siirt mayor who was elected from the Peace and Democracy Party (BDP) for not generating any developments in Siirt, "BDP produces tension and ideology instead of development projects," added Erdogan.
"We will put all our effort into development, peace and unity instead of violence and tension in the country," said Erdogan.
Erdogan also slammed the Republican People Party's leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu for claiming that the Prime Minister had 13 bank accounts in Swiss banks.
"It is an absolute slander. If he brings any document verfying his claim, I am ready to give all of the money in the accounts attributed to me to him," said Erdogan.Last Mod: 12 Mart 2014, 17:27
