(CNN) Partial results in Turkey’s snap elections put President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his party in the lead, lifting the veteran leader’s chances of surviving his biggest electoral challenge in 15 years.

With 75% of the votes for the presidential race counted, Erdogan was at 54.7%, a comfortable lead over main opposition candidate Muharrem Ince, who has 29.7% of the votes so far.
The results are not final and could change as more ballots are counted from other regions of the country.
Is it any wonder? Does anyone really believe the Turkish caliph would permit free and fair elections?

  • His rival Muharrem Ince challenged him to a ‘confrontation’ in Ankara yesterday

Turkish Presidential Opponent Sees TV Blackout of Huge Rallies Ahead of Vote

Sputnik, June 23, 2018:

The primary opposition rival for the presidency of Turkey in Sunday’s election held final rallies in the nation only to see state-run telecommunications networks black out his events, said to be attended by millions.

Muharrem Ince, an increasingly popular presidential candidate running against three-time incumbent Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has seen his rallies censored even as his candidacy has gained strength over the past several months.

Erdogan on the brink: Turkish state TV BLACKS OUT huge rally held by the president’s main rival as the strongman tries to cling to power in election on Sunday

  • President Erdogan is seeking a fourth term and has so far avoided TV debates 
  • His rival Muharrem Ince challenged him to a ‘confrontation’ in Ankara yesterday
  • At another rally in Istanbul today he was told the event wasn’t being broadcast 

A rally held by the Turkish President’s main rival has been blacked out by state broadcasters after he dared Erdogan to ‘confront him’ in a TV debate.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan’, 64, is standing for re-election in tomorrow’s presidential vote that could cement Turkey’s switch from a parliamentary to a presidential system, which was narrowly approved in a referendum last year.

At a mass rally in the city of Ankara yesterday, Muharrem Ince, a fiery lawmaker from the opposing secular Republican People’s Party (CHP) had a message for Erodgan.

‘Tomorrow is the last evening. If you have the courage, confront me,’ he said.

But as he began his speech at another event in Istanbul today he was handed a note saying the broadcast of the rally was ‘down’ on a state TV channel, which he quickly branded ‘sabotage’ on Edrogan’s part.
