Spread on social networking sites calls for figures from political Islam and the organization of the Muslim Brotherhood calls to save the Turkish lira from collapse. 

These people justified their calls, fearing that the collapse of the pound would affect the chances of Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan's victory in the upcoming presidential and parliamentary elections.  "Muslims rushed to save the Turkish lira," one of them wrote on Twitter.  

Earlier on Saturday, Erdogan called on the Turks to "save their currency" and convert their savings in euros and dollars to the lira.

For his part, considered the deputy head of the party of the Turkish nationalist movement Sevan Ayagan it would be good not to interfere with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in financial policies.  

Ayman, whose party allied with Erdogan's party in the upcoming elections, stressed that his remarks were not intended to criticize the Turkish president. 29 ended and Erdogan has hinted in his interview with the Bloomberg site during his visit to London that he will intervene in the central bank 's policies, where Erdogan expressed his opposition then to raise interest that the beneficial interest rate decline is the low rates of inflation.

Erdogan said he met with the head of the Central Bank and Economy Minister Nihad Zibekji before traveling abroad, but the bank decided to raise interest rates after he left the country.

"They did it without my knowledge, and some of the colleagues' comments about the economy are very wrong," Erdogan said.  The currency has fallen more than 20 percent of its value since the beginning of the year, before gaining some gains, as investors turned to selling the pound in the recent period to concerns about the central bank's ability to contain inflation.  LINK
