FRANCE 24 report: Alevi minority's hopes for Turkey's future ahead of elections

Days ahead of presidential and parliamentary elections, Turkey is at a crossroads. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is seeking an unprecedented third term in power, but is facing a serious challenger: technocrat Kemal Kilicdaroglu, who is a member of the Muslim Alevi minority. His faith and identity has been a major talking point during the campaign. Ahead of the vote, FRANCE 24’s team went to meet Alevis who survived February's devastating earthquakes to listen to their story and hear their hopes for Turkey’s future.
