CHP Spokesperson Faik Öztrak: The government is scraping the bottom of the pan
CHP Deputy Chairman for Economic Policies and Party Spokesperson Faik Öztrak; Turkey’s Risk Premium, Short-Term External Debt, Dollar Rate, Seasonally Adjusted Real Number of Unemployed Charts were also added, and he said:
“The situation in the economy at the moment: The risk premium, which fell below 500 before the election, has again approached 700 basis points. This is added as interest on each dollar of foreign borrowing. Türkiye now pays much more interest abroad than a week ago.
Speaking of debt… Turkey’s short-term external debt increased by 13 billion dollars in the first three months. Over $161 billion. This is a record! The government goes and scrapes the bottom of the pot.
Our foreign exchange balance is running short, short-term external debt is increasing. The Central Bank also makes arrangements that increase interest so that citizens cannot withdraw cash or buy gold with their credit cards. But no matter what they do, our money continues to be stamped.
Interest lobbies, dollar barons gain from this work, unemployment and cost of living are falling to the share of the nation. In the first 3 months of this year; The number of unemployed increased by 719 thousand people compared to the previous 3 months. It reached 8 million 564 thousand people. This is more than the population of 96 countries in the world.
Decide for Türkiye! Poverty is not destiny, unemployment is not destiny, If you say it should not continue like this, on May 28, at the ballot box, Our votes go to Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu…”
