Where do you expect MHP to exert the greatest influence on Erdoğan with respect to domestic and foreign policy?

So far in this webinar; we are looking at trees and not the forest. Raise your self above the trees and look at the Forest. This morning Erdoğan has been declared the 1st PRESIDENT OF NEW TURKEY by the leader of the MHP and all AK Parti participants. It does not take a Nostradamous to see that Atatürk's posters will be rmoved soon. This election at first sight was about the economic agenda as pushed by the CHP and İYİ (Good) party vs the Security agenda pushed by AKP and MHP. This is again only the tip of the Iceberg. The real election was about Culture. The Arabic culture vs the Secular Culture. The voters did not take anything into consideration but their culture. The disolusioned policies of the US and EU toward Turkey has played into Arabic culture. The treatment Turkey got from the EU and USA supported AKP and MHP values. Turkey and its elections is putting an other nail democtratic values and tolerance of its people around the world. Will US and EU continue their isolationist, unsincere policies?

Secular People are seen as Pro-Western. Western policies making Turkey wait at the doorstep of EU for many years. Along with US policy of supporting terrorists in syria and noth iraq. The refusal of the US to deport Gülen. The threats from the congress and the senate about the events of 1915, the threat of not selling f-35 and other arms that has been paid, the cyrprus issue, the soverignty issue of the islands in the Aegean. The Secular culture has been abonded by the EU and US. What will it take to change the policies of US and EU? Why do the US?
