    With general elections over, all eyes have turned once again to Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul, who has made a statement in regards to the possibility of his own candidacy for president. Said Gul yesterday, "My decision is leaning towards ignoring the signals in the general populace."

    Also in regards to the upcoming presidential election, Gul noted "The process should be carried in the direction shown by national will." He went on "I cannot say that I will not be a candidate. Democracy must be the compass that we all depend on. Who it is that can represent the Turks at home and abroad. This is what should be discussed.....It is well known how the subject of the presidency is talked about in city squares and streets. Why it is that everyone came to the ballot boxes in the middle of July. Why it is that everyone left their fields and their holidays and came to the ballot boxes. Because the presidential election process was blocked. I could speak more openly. But I am speaking like this in order to carry this process with maturity and compromise."
