Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, right, is seen in an election billboard of his Justice and Development Party with Haghia Sophia in the background in Istanbu, Turkey, Thursday, March 27, 2014. Erdogan has been ensnared in a corruption scandal that has toppled four Cabinet ministers. He has provoked outrage at home and abroad with an attempt to block Twitter and YouTube. His incessant us-against-them rhetoric and conspiracy theories have alienated allies. Meanwhile, the Turkish Lira has fallen, interest rates are up and the Turkish economy has fallen off a cliff. It all might be enough to oust any leader. But as Turks prepare to vote in local elections Sunday, it's all about Erdogan. The billboard reads: "Fatih (district) forever."(AP Photo/Emrah Gurel)
