Specifically the role of civil and minority rights in the constitution remains a point of discussion, with the AKP especially unwilling to grant extra rights to the Kurds. In the first place, the findings of KramerTufteHibbsLewis-BeckNannestad and Paldam suggest not only that stronger economic growth, but also that lower inflation and less unemployment may have a positive effect on the re-election of the incumbent.
