After a narrow victory of Turkey's main opposition party CHP against Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's AKP in Istanbul's mayoral election last month, Turkey’s Supreme Electoral Council annulled the results and ordered a rerun of the election for the mayor of Istanbul.
In an election marred by electoral fraud, Turkey's ruling Justice and Development Party wins with 44% of the vote while Republican People's Party comes in second with 30% of the vote. Overall, People's Alliance gets 51% of the vote while Nation Alliance receives 37% of the vote. Voter turnout was 84%.
Voters head to the polls in Turkey to vote on metropolitan and district municipal mayors along with provincial and municipal councillors. The election is believed to be contested on challenging the current President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.
