Turkish presidential runoff set for Sunday

The World

This weekend, about 60 million Turkish voters are expected to go to the polls on Sunday again for a presidential runoff between incumbent President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who has been in power for 20 years, and opposition leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, who is promising a return to democratic values. The winner will inherit a spiraling economy, oversee rebuilding efforts in earthquake-devastated provinces, and try to manage a testy relationship between Russia and the West. Here to tell us more is The World's Durrie Bouscaren in Istanbul.
