  • ℹ️ Description
Ekrem Imamoglu, mayoral candidate of the secularist Republican People's Party (CHP) and Turkey's main opposition, claimed a decisive victory on Sunday in Istanbul's re-run election, dealing one of the biggest blows to President Tayyip Erdogan during his 16 years in power and promising a new beginning in the country's largest city.

CHP supporters expressed their excitement over the win and Imamoglu's rival AK party candidate Binali Yildirim said his wish was for Imamoglu 'to serve Istanbul well'.

If Turks only follow Ataturk's direction, Turkey can be greater place than many Western countries. What to do already told by Ataturk years ago.

A few weeks ago Erdogan said that “Losing Istanbul means losing Turkey” . they didn’t lose only Istanbul but they also lost almost every other big cities like Ankara, Izmir, Adana, Antalya, Mersin, Mugla etc. Erdogan’s supporters are mostly from suburbs. In the next presidential elections in Turkey, it’s clear to see that the opponent party will take the lead.

Before the second election, the distinction between Imamoglu and Erdogan's party was only 13.000 votes. And today, it is 800 000. Turkey is getting shrewder and shrewder.
