TRT's (Turkish broadcaster) general director declared that Turkey is not going to participate in ESC 2013 to be held in Malmö, giving no reason just a few minutes before.
I personally think the reason cannot be economical reasons but the unfair changes made by both EBU and SVT, and if so I side with this decision. So you are to go on without us. Good luck everyone! :D

The first time since 1994 that Turkey don't participate. :( I hope to see them back in 2014.

I read that Turkey is not participating because of the new rules concerning the start position. I personnally think too that it's not fair that some people choose the starting order, it will always be the same countries that will have the best places. With already 5 countries that withdraw, ESC 2013 is indeed going to be a flop.  :sick:

This is huge shock!  :o
according to Wikipedia, "(TRT) announced their withdrawal from the contest, citing dissatisfaction with the introduction of a mixed jury/televote voting system and the current status of the "Big Five" and they are right. i see no reason for the continuation of the stupid capitalist rule called "Big 5". as long as those countries are part of the event and pay for it, they can start at the semis as far as i see it.
and the producers choose the order entry? that sound like it will be the most corrupted ESC of all time  :o

A mixed jury/televote system seems better than a televote system. The fact that producers will decide the final draw is strange and totally unfair.  :talktothehand:
