New York (RichTVX.com) — A Dutch researcher, Frank Hoogerbeets, made a prediction via Twitter last Friday that a devastating M 7.5 earthquake will soon hit South-Central Turkey, Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon. The earthquake could turn into a personal disaster for Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who is seeking re-election for a second term. Turkey has been repeatedly accused of secretly supporting Russia, and the Turkish Interior Minister, Soylu, recently made hostile remarks to the US Ambassador in Ankara. Erdogan had planned to publicly announce a block against Finland and Sweden regarding NATO, but the earthquake happened instead. Erdogan and his administration have faced criticism for construction corruption and conflicts of interest. These scandals have raised concerns about the safety of residents, and the recent earthquake that claimed thousands of lives only highlighted these issues. Voters are expected to hold the government accountable for the destroyed neighborhoods and lost lives, making housing security and responsibility a crucial issue in the upcoming elections. Some Turks jokingly suggest that Erdogan may even blame the opposition for causing the earthquake, but a clear favorite in the June presidential elections has yet to be determined.
