Opposition candidate, Kemal Kilicdaroglu

Danger may come in many forms.

For Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, that danger may well be embodied by a former civil servant.

Presidential candidate Kemal Kilicdaroglu, who is supported by the opposition alliance of six parties, has confirmed that if he wins the upcoming elections, he will bring freedom and democracy to Turkey, whatever the cost.

He told the BBC: “Young people want democracy. They don’t want the police to come to their door early in the morning just because they tweeted.”
