Turkish Politics After The Coup Posted by on Dec 11, 2016 in Arabic Language

Marhaba! Just turning on the news or flipping through different websites, you would immediately come to the conclusion that the Turkish regime has taken repressive measures after the failed coup in July to restore its legitimacy and stretch of power. In a previous post, I have focused on the coup in Turkey and the immediate ramifications. However, the political situation has not gotten better since the events in July. In fact, just yesterday all media outlets reported that two bombs killed scores of people and wounded many others outside a football stadium in Istanbul.

You all know by now that I want you Arabic lovers to discuss the most recent and trendiest developments in the world in Arabic. For this purpose and other educational reasons, I am sharing a news story about the latest measures by the Turkish regime to consolidate its repressive power in the form of a listening comprehension exercise from Al Arabiya. I want you all to always work on perfecting your listening skills. As always, I have some questions for you to answer. Good luck! Share your thoughts on the news story on this page and/or via our Twitter/Facebook pages.

1) How will Turkey’s President Erdogan use the referendum?
2) Which branch of government is responsible for making changes to the executive branch?
3) Which political party in Turkey is pushing for any changes in the executive branch?
4) How many articles and requests for constitutional amendments are being presented?
5) What are Turkey’s opposition parties accusing Erdogan of?

For now take care and stay tuned for the answers soon!
Happy Learning!
Have a nice day!!
نهاركم سعيد

Salam everyone! Born as an American to two originally Arab parents, I have been raised and have spent most of my life in Beirut, Lebanon. I have lived my good times and my bad times in Beirut. I was but a young child when I had to learn to share my toys and food with others as we hid from bombs and fighting during the Lebanese Civil War. I feel my connection to Arabic as both a language and culture is severing and so it is with you, my readers and fellow Arabic lovers, and through you that I wish to reestablish this connection by creating one for you.
