Election

Is there likely to be any big changes in the upcoming election that could affect exchange rates?

I'm not sure whether to change money before the election in case the exchange rate dips afterwards.

Thanks

Whilst the exchange rate is so high, I personally wouldn't chance it and change at an excellent rate at home. Debenhams is usually a good rate. Don't get me wrong I'd usually suggest changing money in turkey but currently I would be more than happy with a rate over 6..

Asked the guy in a change shop last night were we got 6.15TL. He said he expects the rate to drop to around 5.00TL tomorrow and at the weekend because of the Elections. He said it should rise again next week, but he cannot guarantee that
