The main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) in Turkey has accused Erdogan and his party of misuse of central bank foreign reserves to uphold the Turkish Lira in 2019-20.
Economist have calculated that back then the sales by state banks to support the Turkish lira totalled $128.3 billion.
“Where is the $128 billion?” question has become the slogan of the CHP with posters on billboards all over the country. The ruling AKP, annoyed by this campaign, has deemed the banners on billboards “Insult to the president.” Police forces removed the banners from the billboards and also from the windows of the CHP offices in Istanbul and elsewhere overnight.
This slogan has also became a trending topic on social media. People are asking a straightforward question: “Where is the money? Who stole it?”
