In the wake of a failed coup attempt in July 2016, Erdogan has aimed to consolidate his power (BBC, NY Times, Bloomberg). In the event that Erdogan reportedly disappears or flees the capital, Good Judgment will observe a three-week waiting period, at the end of which the question will close retroactively to the date of his disappearance or exodus. If Erdogan returns in the interim, the question will remain open. Recommended Questions Will the EU lift visa requirements for Turkish citizens before the end of 2016?
