The Lion Tattoo on Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu’s Back and Turkey’s Elections

Infuriated, the artist throws the needle to the ground and yells, “What on Earth is this? How can there be a lion without a tail, a head, or ears? Who has ever seen such a lion?” Maybe no observer of Turkish politics has given it serious thought before, but Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, the Republican People’s Party (CHP) chairman who used to run Turkey’s Social Security Institution (SGK), has apparently been intent on getting a metaphorical lion tattoo on his back–just like the man from Qazvin in Rumi’s Masnavi.
