A 20-year-old man who has the identical name as Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced his candidacy for parliament in the Turkish Black Sea region in Samsun on Wednesday.

The student in Political Science and Public Administration at Recep Tayyip Erdogan University, who is no relation to the country`s president, said he admired his leader.

He told the press conference “Dear precious citizens, I’d like to share with you that, I, as your brother raised in the high school organisation of AK Party, which is operating as a factory among AK Party organisations, am devoted to my ideals and admiring my leader. This is the first step of us, the youth, in politics. I announced that I’m a candidate for nomination from Samsun, the city I was born and raised in, for the election of the president of the Republic on June 24.”

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.

Only a dictatorship with personality cult could name a university after a living person.
