Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan announced that he would run for the presidential elections in 2023.

"The candidate of the People's Alliance is Tayyip Erdoğan," said Erdoğan, speaking at his ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party's Izmir Provincial Advisory Council.

The president's announcement comes after Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu's remarks regarding the elections.

Kılıçdaroğlu, leader of the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP), has said that when the date of the election was announced, they would determine their presidential candidate.

"You keep saying 'Let the election date be clear'. The election will be held in mid-June next year," underlined Erdoğan.

The People's Alliance is formed by the AK Party and the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP).
