In Turkey, Erdoğan himself is the president and won more than half of the votes

Ankara: The Turkish presidential election was won by incumbent President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. According to unofficial figures from a Turkish government agency, Erdogan received 52.1 percent of the vote. Meanwhile, the result has yet to be confirmed by the official Higher Election Council. Erdogan has been Turkey’s president for the past ten years.

Erdogan received 49.52 percent of the vote in the first round on May 14. Kilicdaroglu, his opponent, received 44.88 percent of the vote. Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party and its allies secured 323 seats in the 600-member legislature. Erdogan performed better than expected in the first round in a country devastated by an earthquake that killed over 50,000 people.

There were criticisms that Erdogan’s administration failed to act quickly during the disaster. Turkey’s deepening financial crisis, soaring inflation, currency depreciation, and opposition campaigning have all posed challenges to Erdogan’s presidency.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s dictatorial methods have been widely criticised. During the campaign, Erdogan claimed that voting for him was like voting for the stability of the country.
