But the parallels should not obscure what has changed in the interim. Turkey's economy is better balanced now than it was then.

As a result, Turkey's current-account deficit has narrowed far more swiftly than even the government had envisaged.

Although its import bill is hardly the only claim on its foreign earnings (its banks and firms must also service heavy external debts),
虽然其进口账单并不是海外收益的唯一要求(其银行和公司也必须服务于沉重的债务。)
the lira was relatively stable from December to February.
但从12月至2月,里拉相对稳定。
Local elections in March were supposed to bring a similar stability to politics,
3月的地方选举本应给政治带来类似的稳定,

Instead, the weeks before and since have done the opposite, unsettling both Turkey's politics and the markets.
相反,前几周和之后的几周却适得其反,让土耳其的政治和市场都感到不安。
Mr Erdogan's party, which lost in most of the country's big cities, has so far refused to accept its narrow defeat in the Istanbul mayoral contest.
埃尔多安所在的政党失去了该国的大部分城市,到目前为止,该党拒绝承认在伊斯坦布尔的选举中以微弱优势落败。
