President Recep Tayyip Erdogan alone should engage in politics, a top advisor to the Turkish leader told state television station TRT Haber.
"There is no need for anyone else to engage in politics," advisor Yigit Bulut said late Tuesday. "He does politics internally, and he does politics abroad. Our job is to support the leader in this country."
Bulut has been a member of Erdogan's advisory circle for several years. During the 2013 Gezi Park protests he claimed Erdogan was at risk of assassination by foreign forces using "telekinesis."
After Erdogan was elected president in 2014, Bulut, a former journalist, was named an economic advisor.
