the problem of Turkey‘s adhesion into the European Union. Local elections
were held in Turkey on March 31, 2019. The results of these elections actually
gave a ―people‘s assessment‖ of the fundamental internal political changes
implemented as part of the country‘s transition from a parliamentary to a presidential republic. Comparison of the results of the voting held on June 24,
2018 and March 31, 2019, shows a downward trend in the popularity of the
ruling party. The situation in the country in the context of domestic political
transformation in the form of a certain factor, in one degree or another, was also reflected in Turkey‘s foreign policy, including the European direction. The
Turkish authorities were particularly annoyed by the EU documents prepared
after examining the situation in the country on the eve and during the elec-
tions, as well as the statements by the leaders of the EU member states and institutions that criticized the voting procedures and conditions. In the period
under review, Turkey, while maintaining its status as a candidate country for
EU membership, continued to distance itself from it. Nevertheless, the European Union continued to provide financial support and technical assistance to
Turkey to jointly solve problems in the sphere of migration.
