Tayyip Erdogan, backed by the People’s Alliance and Kemal Kilinçdaroğlu of the National Alliance will lock horns in the second round of Turkey’s presidential election.
The Turkish Cypriot media broadcast the Turkish President’s message to voters abroad through his message to social media. “I beg you to use your democratic right. I expect you, the representatives of our nation abroad, to once again strongly support your will. You showed great favour to me and the People’s Alliance,” Erdogan added in his message.
It was noted that in all ballot boxes abroad during the first round, Erdogan had obtained the majority of votes.
