Turkey - SMART

The Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, won the Turkish early presidential election, which was held on Sunday, June 24, winning over 50 per cent of the votes. This win rate eliminates the need of a second round of elections. About 88 per cent of the Turkish people voted in the elections.

Erdogan won 52,38 per cent of the votes, achieving the required percentage to win the elections (over 50 per cent). The Republican People's Party (CHP) candidate, Muharrem Ince, came second with 30,79 per cent, and the leader of the Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP), Selahattin Demirtas, who entered the election from prison, came third with 8,31 per cent.

The ruling Justice and Development Party won 42,49 per cent of the parliament seats (293 seats) during the parliamentary elections, as the ruling party's ally in the People's Alliance, the Nationalist Movement Party, won 11,13 per cent of the seats (50 seats), achieving a majority of 53,62 per cent of the parliament seats (343 seats) for the People's Alliance.

The opposing Nation Alliance, which includes the Republican People's Party (CHP), the Good Party (IYI) and the Felicity Party, won 34,04 per cent of the parliament seats (190 seats), and the Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) won 11,13 per cent of the seats (76 seats).

The Russian President Vladimir Putin congratulated Erdogan on winning the elections, as the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs received congratulations from Bahrain, Qatar, Palestine, Sudan, the Libyan Government of National Accord, Greece, Serbia, Hungary, Azerbaijan and Albania.

The Imam of the al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, Sheikh Akramah Sabri, the chief of Hamas, and other figures also congratulated Erdogan on the win.

In Syria, several factions from the Free Syrian Army, such as the al-Rahman Legion, the National Liberation Front, the Samarqand Brigade, and the Fighting Rescue Front, issued statements to congratulate Erdogan for winning the Turkish presidential elections, describing him as the "Sultan of Muslims."

On April 16, 2017, fifty-one per cent of the Turkish voters voted in favor of the institutional adjustment project, which included changing the ruling regime from parliamentary to presidential. Earlier in the 2015 parliamentary elections, the Justice and Development Party won more than 49 per cent of the parliament seats.
