As the presidential and parliamentary elections that will be held on May 14 in Türkiye are approaching, the parties are accepting new figures as members.
Gokhan Zan, a former footballer, joined the Good (IYI) Party with his wife Muge Uzun Zan on Wednesday.
The party chairman Meral Aksener wore the badges to the couple. “I come from a geography that cannot raise its head from earthquakes,” said the 41-year-old in the badge-pinning ceremony in the parliament, who was an assistant coach of the Hatayspor football club.
Powerful earthquakes centered in Kahramanmaras on Feb 6 ruined Hatay and caused properties to collapse.
Zan, who is known for his calls for help on social media in the first minutes of the tremors, became a parliamentary candidate from the Good Party. He is expected to run in Hatay, where he was born.
Unal Karaman, a former football player and coach, also joined the party in question.
