Ali Babacan, a former heavyweight from Turkey’s ruling party who founded the rival Deva Party last month, said the Turkish government’s stimulus package to mitigate the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic had failed to provide for millions of people employed in informal work.
On March 18, Turkey unveiled a relief package worth 100 billion Turkish liras ($15.4 billion) which includes debt payment delays and tax cuts across various sectors to limit the economic fallout from coronavirus.
