Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been in office for more than a decade. But he's not ready to leave the political scene anytime soon – instead he's running to become the country's next president after elections in August. But there are two other candidates in the mix and one of them has been very vocal about the lack of coverage he's been getting. 41-year old Selahattin Demirtas is a Kurdish politician from the Peoples' democratic party.
