In addition to the anticipation of a number of surprise candidates, expectations are that a number of current deputies may be left out. Those considered to have secured spots on the candidate list are Prime Minister Erdoğan's close working friends who have resigned to become possible candidates, Nabi Avcı, Çağatay Kılıç and Yalçın Akdoğan as well as former Police Department Chief Oğuz Kağan Köksal and Public Order and Security Undersecretary Muammer Güler.
The AKP also received a number of candidate applications from famous figures including football players Hakan Şükür and Tanju Çolak as well as famous performer İbrahim Tatlıses, who applied to Erdoğan personally from his hospital bed, where he was being treated following a recent horrific attack.Both the AK Party and CHP worked into the morning hours to complete their candidate lists.
