“Erdogan is now fully in charge.” Indeed. And with Nebati replacing Elvan, the President will also not hear any alternative views from his Cabinet, as it unequivocally aligns behind new economic policies. My takes & more goodies in @laurapitel's story:

The decision not to release Osman Kavala today is indefensible: it is in breach of an order of the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights and will now lead to a stand off with the Council of Europe which Turkey joined in 1950. Another very dark day.

#Turkish court just rejected #OsmanKavala’s request to be released & said he will remain jailed, effectively shrugging off an #ECHR ruling saying he should be freed. Kavala has already been in jail for more than four years without a conviction.

The clock is ticking for #Turkey to release philanthropist #OsmanKavala. The Council of Europe is threatening infringement proceedings if he's not freed by end of November. Human rights groups say he's tip of the iceberg. Our report with @Goktay, @Wburema @MuratBaykara

As Turks fretted about the plunging lira and soaring living costs, a member of Erdoğan’s ruling party told them to eat less, while the opposition accused the president of "treachery". Here's a look at the politics of a turbluent week:

My colleague @rbrtrmstrng on the lira: "The good news — for everyone except the Turks — is that the crisis has been caused primarily by bad policy that is unique to Turkey, and that there are few channels for it to spread elsewhere."

ISTANBUL, Nov 23 (Reuters) - Turkey's lira nose-dived nearly 9% on Tuesday after President Tayyip Erdogan defended recent sharp rate cuts, and vowed to win his "economic war of independence" despite widespread criticism and pleas to reverse course.

I regret to inform you they are “renovating” the Kapalıçarşı (Grand Bazaar) in Istanbul. It looks plastic. Is there anything these people respect at all? How do they keep on destroying everything they touch?

After years of apathy, the travel industry has reached a turning point, making the first commitment toward a shared road map to cut carbon emissions in half by 2030 and reach “net zero” by 2050. Our story from #cop26

My periodic reminder of the most beautiful place in the world. Make it a bucketlist thing. At least once in your life you have to see this amazing region. Sleep in a cave hotel, drink wine in Urgup, see the valley's and underground monasteries. You won't regret it.
