TRT General Director Ibrahim Sahin has announced that Turkey will not participate in Eurovision 2015. Turkey has not participated in the contest since 2012 having withdrawn from the contest due to issues with the Big 5 and the use of jury voting. Turkey have however announced that they will take part in the ABU TV Song Festival 2014 and Turkvision 2014.
Ibrahim Sahin has said that:
The European Broadcasting Union has publicly apologized, but we’re not content with a single apology. We want change, they have to make a significant adjustment to the terms and conditions, in the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest for TRT to take part.
