On Sunday, June 7, 2015, Turkish citizens are headed to the polls once again. The elections will be nationwide general elections for 550 seats in the Turkish Parliament.The major issues that have permeated the electoral climate are the potential switch to presidentialism, trampled rights and freedoms, the economic downturn, and the Kurdish question. The prospects for free and fair elections are also frequently contested, given irregularities in the elections of 2014 and increasingly restricted media.
