On 3 January 2018, Al-Monitor published an article written by Zulfikar Dogan in which it was claimed that during the era of Turkey’s ruling AK Party, the nation has “never managed to repeat” the international sport achievements that had been obtained before 2002 - the time when the AK Party came to power - “not only in soccer and basketball but in other disciplines as well.”  

However, Turkey has won many sporting competitions since 2002.
