Turkish presidential and parliamentary elections start

Istanbul, May 14 (BNA): Turkish citizens voted today, Sunday, in one of the most important elections in Turkey’s 100-year modern history.


Opinion polls give Erdogan’s main rival Kemal Kilicdaroglu, who heads a coalition of six opposition parties, a slight lead, but if either fails to get more than 50% of the vote, a run-off election will take place on May 28.


Polling stations opened at 8:00 am and closed at 5:00 pm, according to Reuters.


Under Turkish law, it is forbidden to report any results until 9 p.m


By late Sunday, there could be a good indication of whether there will be a presidential runoff vote.


Queues formed at polling stations in the city, with about 9,000 police on duty across the county.
