  • The Economist Intelligence Unit

The Economist Intelligence Unit's baseline forecast is that Turkey's political scene will continue to be dominated by the religiously conservative ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) and by its former prime minister and now president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

We expect the AKP to remain in power beyond the next general election, which is due by mid-2015. It is Mr Erdogan's declared intention to overhaul the constitution to establish a presidential system of government. The concentration of power in the hands of Mr Erdogan without effective checks and balances in place raises concern about the future of Turkey's democratic and policymaking institutions, which increases the risk of political, economic and social instability.

The conflicts in Iraq and Syria are threatening Turkey's internal and external security. The Turkish government's refusal to intervene to support efforts to prevent the jihadist Islamic State (IS) from capturing the Kurdish-controlled town of Kobane on the Syrian side of the border with Turkey has led to accusations that it tacitly supports the extremists' advances. This triggered violent Kurdish anti-IS protests and counter-protests in the Kurdish-inhabited south east of the country. This violence and the recent murders in the south-east of several members of the armed forces threaten to undermine the government's bold push to resolve the decades-old Kurdish issue.
