Turkish president votes in Istanbul’s election re-run

Istanbul voters will make most accurate decision for city, Erdogan says

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan cast his vote in Istanbul’s election re-run on Sunday.

“Istanbul voters will make the most accurate decision for the city,” Erdogan told reporters following his vote in Istanbul’s Uskudar district.

Top contenders Binali Yildirim and Ekrem Imamoglu are vying to run the metropolitan municipality of Turkey’s most populous city after a previous vote on March 31 was annulled by the country’s top election council last month.

Millions of Turkish voters cast their votes nationwide on March 31 in local elections to choose mayors, city council members, mukhtars (neighborhood officials), and members of elder councils for the next five years.
