TURKISH PRESS REVIEW on MAR. 10

Anadolu Agency does not verify these stories and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Most of Turkey's dailies covered Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's local election campaign in Sanliurfa, a province in Turkey's south-east. The Prime Minister accused U.S.-based cleric Fethullah Gulen of discriminating against the renowned 20th century Islamic scholar Said Nursi, because of his Kurdish roots. Nursi preached a Sufi version of Islam that has a strong following in Turkey and emphasized the attainment and preservation of faith as the most important aspect of religious life.

Dailies Turkiye and Star reported a recent poll that shows the ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party could be increasing its vote share up to 46.9 percent. A survey conducted by data collection and research company ANAR in 28 provinces indicated that support for the AK Party has increased to 46.9 percent.

Daily Vatan covered the Turkish container ship that ran aground near the Greek island of Mykonos on Friday night. The Greek coast guard rescued 12 crews with helicopters and boats and two other crews rescued by a U.S. Navy ship.

Daily Haberturk also covered Turkey’s Science, Industry and Technology Minister, Fikri Isik: “We have found a new brave entrepreneur to join the Turkish domestic car project.” The Turkish Domestic Car Project, which started in 2011, is to be supported by the government with around 100 million Turkish Liras.
