  • The Economist Intelligence Unit

The Economist Intelligence Unit's baseline forecast is that the religiously conservative ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) and its former prime minister and now president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, will continue to dominate the political scene beyond the general election on June 7th 2015.

It is Mr Erdogan's declared intention to overhaul the constitution to establish a presidential system of government. However, such a move will require a parliamentary super-majority that the AKP is unlikely to obtain on its own at the general election. 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 was slow 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. 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.
