Küs kardeşlerin ezeli rekabeti
          Twisted sisters Sema and Selma.

For the last 10 years the AK Party has been the scene of
competition between two estranged sisters. Selma Kavaf, who
at one time was the Minister for Family Affairs, has been succeeded
by her sister Sema Ramazanoğlu 6 years later.

The two sister have not talked to one another for quite some time.
They both were candidates for the Parliament in the June elections
from separate locales but neither one was selected. In fact, because
of the two sisters' rivalry, Sema's husband Mehmet Ramazanoğlu
left her and was elected as a parliamentarian in 2011.

But this time in the 1 November elections, Sema left both her sister
and husband in the dust and became a cabinet minister. Sema is a
close friend of Turkish President Erdoğan's wife Emine and was one
of the founders of the AK Party. In those early years, because she
covered her head she could not be a parliamentarian and concentrated
on leading the AK Women's Branch.

At that time, Selma, who doesn't cover her head, came to the fore and
became Minister for Family Affair in 2009. When Mehmet Ramazanoğlu
was elected to Parliament in 2011, the two sisters' relations were severed.
In the June elections this year Selma was a candidate from Denizli and
Sema from Istanbul but neither one made the final cut.   In the November
election, though, Sema became not only a parliamentarian, after waiting
13 years, but a minister, as well.
