In AKP-led Turkey the popularity of Necip Fazıl has been soaring, Erdoğan himself quoting and promoting the Islamist's poetic output on many occasions; he “described the poet’s life and works as a guide for himself and future generations, in late May 2013, as worded by Sean R. Singer. Singer goes on to say that this “was not an isolated reference. [In 2012], in an interview with a literary journal, Erdogan recalled that the master and his ordeals helped us, like no other, to make sense of history and the present'. Democracy is like a streetcar, when you reach your destination, you get off” (14 June 1996) After years and years of playing the political game, of throwing speeches and wooing voters, of going to the polls and winning election after election, and subsequently climbing balconies and addressing crowd after crowd, Tayyip Erdoğan and his henchmen have now finally formalised the initial step towards their ultimate destination – “Our Reference is Islam.

Turbo-charged Since securing her berth in the runoff, Le Pen has turbo-charged her campaign with a string of appearances and statements, leaving her opponent on the back foot. At the crack of dawn on Tuesday she was at the sprawling Rungis food market outside Paris, taking aim at what she said was Macron's desire for "total deregulation, total opening up, total free trade". In contrast, her opponent has huddled in strategy meetings over June legislative elections that will determine the shape of a future Macron government. Polls suggest that Macron will trounce Le Pen in the runoff with a margin of some 20 points. But after the political shocks of Britain's vote to leave the European Union and Donald Trump's unlikely ascent to the White House, analysts say a late surge by Le Pen is still possible. Le Pen says she is the only candidate for change in a deeply divided country burdened by high unemployment and inequality.

British Prime Minister Theresa May will on Wednesday hold talks with EU Commission head Jean-Claude Juncker and chief negotiator Michel Barnier, ahead of a summit to set the bloc's Brexit "red lines". In the first such meeting between the three key players, they will discuss the upcoming negotiations on Britain's withdrawal from the European Union over dinner at May's Downing Street residence. Brussels has hardened its position in recent days, making new demands over financial services, immigration and the bills Britain must settle before ending its 44-year-old membership of the bloc. The leaders of the other 27 EU nations will meet on April 29 to formally approve the guidelines for Barnier, the EU's chief negotiator for Brexit, although the talks will not begin until June. At Downing Street, both sides are likely to "reiterate their positions going into the Brexit talks", Nina Schick, associate director at advisory firm Hanbury Strategy, told AFP.

Portland Trail Blazers general manager Neil Olshey told reporters Tuesday that center Festus Ezeli will not return to the team next season, according to the Oregonian 's Joe Freeman . Ezeli did not appear in a single game for the Blazers during the 2016-17 season because of recurring knee issues. The 27-year-old signed a two-year, $15.1 million deal with Portland last summer, but only a portion of the $7.7 million he's due for the 2017-18 campaign is guaranteed, according to Spotrac . Specifically, $1 million of Ezeli 's 2017-18 salary will be guaranteed so long as he's waived before June 30. Ezeli had a pair of knee procedures after he joined the Blazers, with the most recent coming in March . Those surgeries represented the continuation of an unfortunate trend for the big man, who has been hounded by knee issues since 2013. After Ezeli appeared in 78 games as a rookie, he missed the entire 2013-14 season after he was forced to undergo surgery on a pair of ligaments in his right knee.

The jurisdictions have until June 30 to respond. After a meeting with mayors Tuesday, Sessions issued a statement saying that one jurisdiction has already responded. “We will evaluate those responses to ensure the requirements of these grants are met,” Sessions said in a statement issued before the court ruling.
