Quotes from the news wire:
It was outside the chain of command which was the biggest handicap for the coup plotters, they had an insufficient portfolio of resources. They were grossly under-equipped to achieve their strategic objectives ... There was definitely quite a degree of incompetence compared to how coups were done here in the past.
For all practical purposes the accession dynamic is dead ... In a way it has become inconsequential as far as Erdogan is concerned, it will be a piecemeal effort to concoct areas of common interest and build structures of cooperation as the need arises ... That has been the case for refugees, that will be the case for economic integration, possibly for cooperation on counter-terrorism, and areas like that.
Erdogan's end goal is to consolidate enough popular support to switch to a presidential system. Davutoglu's end goal is to consolidate Ahmet Davutoglu own power and be a successful prime minister, the experience so far has been that when people who seemingly had weight in The AKP showed even a soft form of dissent, Erdogan was able to sideline them without significant consequences for the popularity of the party.
This so-called grand coalition represents the best way forward for Turkey at this juncture, such a broad-based agreement could ease the country's current extreme political polarisation and reintroduce a dynamic of democratic and economic reform underpinned by a new momentum toward the goal of EU accession.
It will be seen as the party that has forced early elections on a recalcitrant Turkish electorate at a time when there are severe challenges, both from the security perspective and also economically, the drawback to this gambit for Erdogan is that if the AK Party ends up losing votes, we may start to see more open dissatisfaction about his influence.
It serves Bahceli’s purpose more to see the HDP acquire cabinet positions under an election government, they want to be able to criticize AKP and Erdogan from the sidelines ... and use that in their election campaign. They actually want Erdogan to call early elections. That's the MHP's strategy I think.
