IslamoTurk against IslamoTurk, what’s not to like?
İhsanoğlu, a Turkish citizen, was elected as the secretary-general of the 57-member OIC in 2005 for a nine-year term after Turkish government exerted great effort for his election to the important international organization.
“Is there anybody who knows what İhsanoğlu is doing? This person had accused [ousted President Mohamed] Morsi after the coup,” Hüseyin Çelik, deputy leader of the Justice and Development Party (AKP), said via Twitter late Aug. 17. Recalling that Turkish President Abdullah Gül and Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan had pushed for his election to the post, Çelik said, “As I recall, I say ‘what a pity.’”
