Ulrike Herrmann is a business editor for the German daily newspaper taz. She says: "Erdogan is only in danger if Turkey plunges into economic crisis."
Bülent Mumay is a columnist for the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. He says: "The failed coup attempt strengthened Erdogan. But events since then raise the question of how well he'll do in the 2019 presidential election."
