The results are in. Voter in Turkey rejected the autocratic rule of the despotic criminal, Jew Hating Muslim Brotherhood aficionado, NATO belligerent and United States antagonist. Istanbul and other major cities through in with the opposition. Although all votes are not counted and there is the usual call from the loser that ballots were stuffed, the dog face Erdogan has suffered a humiliating defeat. And why? The economy has tanked, the Turkish lira has collapsed, seeing a 30% implosion versus the dollar. Take that to the bank.
As the votes came in, Erdogan’s party AK prevented them from being displayed at headquarters. And at one time were calling for a halt to the counting. The delay tactic utilized in the past was a safety valve measure to stuff the ballot box. This time there were preventive measures by the opposition CHP party to prevent this type of hooliganism.
Anadolu’s unofficial data shows Republican People’s Party’s (CHP) candidate Ekrem Imamoglu won the heated mayoral race in Istanbul, the country’s largest city and economic centre, with 48.8 percent of the vote, while the AK Party candidate Binali Yildirim got 48.5 percent.
In the capital, Ankara, unofficial results showed that CHP candidate Mansur Yavas had garnered 50.9 percent, with the AK Party nominee Mehmet Ozhaseki trailing on 47.2 percent.
In the third-largest city, Izmir, the CHP candidate, Mustafa Tunc Soyer, was leading with 58 percent votes while AK Party’s Nihat Zeybekci stood at 38.5 percent.
The usual statements from the losers came forward; how ironic. “Ballots were stuffed, illegal votes were counted, not all the votes were in.” But this time the opposition was well prepared for the onslaught. There was no going back, Erdogan was the Turkey with his head caught off and more. Now officially gelded, his power has been diminished.
