Turkey elections: Inside a pro-government rally

Turkey is preparing for important local elections on Sunday which are seen as a key test of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's leadership.

In contrast to the crackdown on anti-government protests, Mr Erdogan's supporters do not have to worry about tear gas or water cannon.

The ruling AK Party often organises transport for its members to ensure a large turnout at the Prime Minister's events.
