If the second round of these presidential and parliamentary elections takes place, it will be scheduled for May 28. This Sunday, Erdogan said that announcing election results while voting is taking place is “stealing the popular will”, while Kilicdaroglu warned election authorities to register all results in the country.

Turkish media reported that, with nearly 80.5% of the votes counted, Erdogan had won 50.43% of the vote and Kilicdaroglu 43.77%, prompting protests from the opposition.

For 20 years, Erdogan has led Turkey, a country of 85 million people. He is running for the People’s Alliance coalition, made up of the AKP and the nationalist MHP party, among others. Kilicdaroglu represents the coalition of six opposition parties, including his own, the CHP, created by Ataturk, the founder of Turkey.
