Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan takes early lead in local elections
Turkish Prime Minister Recip Tayyip Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party – the AKP has apparently taken an earlier lead-in the country’s local elections.
With over 24 percent of the ballots Turkish television has set the PM’s party forward with between 44 and 48 percent of the election.
Experts begin to see the poll as an emergency referendum on Erdogan’s 10-year-tip.
Kemal Kilicdaroglu may be the head of the primary opposition. The PM has been described by their Republican People’s Party like a corrupt dictator.
The Islamist – grounded AK Party is planning to equal or better its 2009 election of 38.8 percent. A vote below the 36 percent level could be deemed an enormous hit to Erdogan.
Reports state while ballots are now being measured energy hasbeen cut-in a large number of cities and many places in Istanbul.
