Erdogan goes all in: The high stakes of Turkey's elections

In Turkey, it's all or nothing. Recep Tayyip Erdogan is pulling out all the stops ahead of the first presidential poll since a constitutional reform put more power in the president's hands. Sunday's poll is also the first since the failed coup of two years ago and the crackdown that followed. And yet, an Erdogan win is not necessarily a given. What happens if he wins? What happens if he loses?

Produced by Charles WENTE, Rhea SMIRCIC, Selina SYKES and Van MEGUERDITCHIAN.
