The lead of candidates of the Republican People’s Party of Turkey in the elections of municipalities and city councils

According to the counting of about 50% of the votes, the candidates of the Republican People’s Party of Turkey are leading in the elections of municipalities and city councils, especially in Istanbul, Ankara and Izmir.

According to Turkish media, the counting of about 50% of the votes in different cities of Turkey shows that the opposition coalition is in the lead over the Justice and Development Party led by the President of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

This lead will help Erdogan’s political opponents to re-emerge on the political scene.

Imamoglu, the mayor of Istanbul and a serious rival of Erdogan, has managed to surpass his rival in this important city.

Meanwhile, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan gave a speech at the headquarters of the Justice and Development Party in Ankara to the supporters of this party about the local elections of that country.

In this speech, he emphasized that he has always stood by democracy and the ballot box, and today he acts with the same sense of responsibility and does not recognize any power higher than the will of the nation.

Erdoğan added: “The nation used the ballot box as an opportunity to convey its messages to the politicians. Regardless of the results, the winner of this election is democracy and our national will.”
