By John VanPool, EGF Turkey and Black Sea Regional Analyst

Key Points:

  • The AKP-Gulen Movement split hits the front pages and airwaves in Turkey.
  • Once friendly outlets controlled by the Gulen Movement turn on Prime Minister Erdogan after a 2004 action plan is released describing AKP complicity with the military to undermine Gulen-owned companies.
  • The Constitutional Commission fails on its mission having only agreed to half of the required articles.
  • Contentious issues regarding citizenship, the Kurdish issue and a new presidential role remain unresolved.
  • Turkey and the Kurdish Regional Government of Iraq look set to sign a pipeline deal despite continued opposition from Baghdad.
