Istanbul mayoral re-run: Erdogan’s ruling AKP set to lose
Turkey’s ruling party is set to lose control of Istanbul after a re-run of the city’s mayoral election, latest results show.
The candidate for the main opposition party, Ekrem Imamoglu, has won 54% of the vote with nearly all ballots counted.
He won a surprise victory in March which was annulled after the ruling AK party complained of irregularities.
His opponent, former Prime Minister Binali Yildirim, has conceded.
So how do they “fix” this “irregularity” now? Get him convicted of some trumped-up charges of drug dealing or pedophilia?
I cannot believe the AKP are going to let it go this easily.
