Description

Prime Minister Recep Tayep Erdogan has called on his supporters to turn out in large numbers in a show of support ahead of Sunday's elections. Still trying to recover from corruption allegations aimed at top officials, the governing AK Party has come under criticism for restricting access to social media sites like Twitter and YouTube. Turkey's foreign minister has defended his government's decision to block YouTube and Twitter, saying the companies should abide by Turkish law and respect national security.
