Will the Kurds outdo Erdogan in the June elections?

Head of Kurdish Studies at the MDC Prof. Ofra Bengio has written an op-ed in the Jerusalem Post, analyzing the potential influence that the Kurdish constituency may have on the upcoming Turkish elections.

From the article:
The Turkish general and presidential elections scheduled for June 24 are among the most critical ones in the country’s history, since they are likely to decide the direction that Turkey heads – toward an unbridled authoritarian rule, or one that will regain some of its democratic traits. One of the big question marks in these elections is the stance of the Kurdish electorate, which represents about 20% of the total population.
