Erdogan: Turkey's pugnacious 'sultan'If there were a global contest for winning elections, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan would see himself as the undisputed — and undefeated — heavyweight champion of the world. In the 15 years since his ruling party came to power, Erdogan has taken part in 11 elections — five legislative polls, two referenda, three local elections and a presidential vote — and won them all. On Sunday, Erdogan claimed victory in his 12t and arguably biggest ballot-box challenge since his ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) came to power in 2002: a referendum on expanding his powers.
