Our spouses are forbidden to us until we make Erdoğan president - AKP Deputy

The joys of life are forbidden by God to the members of the governing Justice and Development Party (AKP) until Recep Tayyip Erdoğan wins the executive presidency, party’s deputy Mustafa Ataş said on Sunday in western city Bolu, Milli Gazete reported.

Ataş told his party’s supporters during a fast-breaking dinner that there were forces who wanted to undermine Turkey both economically and politically.

“To give them the best answer, sleeping is forbidden to us for the next 27 days. Until we make Erdoğan our president, sleeping is forbidden to us. Our children, our families are forbidden to us. Our spouses, our friends are forbidden. This election is a different election. This election is one of the turning points which will shape the next hundred years of our country,” Ataş said.
