Turkey’s Erdogan challenges opposition to find his golden toilet seat

Irritated by accusations of lavishness, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has vowed to resign if the leader of the main opposition can find a single golden toilet seat in his vast new palace. Kemal Kilicdaroglu of the Republican People’s Party (CHP) has repeatedly criticised Erdogan’s profligacy in campaign speeches ahead of a June 7 parliamentary election. “Gentlemen in Ankara, palaces have been built for you, planes bought, Mercedes cars purchased … golden seats have been bought, that’s how you use the toilet,” Kilicdaroglu said at a rally in the Aegean city of Izmir on Saturday.
