Turkey election re-run angers victorious opposition

May 7, 2019 -- The decision by Turkey’s election board to repeat Istanbul’s mayoral election, won by the opposition candidate in March, is raising the prospect of renewed political and economic turmoil.

Ekrem Imamoglu, the candidate of the main opposition Republican People’s party (CHP), who was confirmed as mayor in April, has called the decision “treacherous”.

Turkey’s Supreme Electoral Council revoked Imamoglu’s mandate after determining that some electoral officials were improperly appointed.

Meanwhile, Binali Yildirim, the candidate for President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s ruling Justice and Development party (AKP), has said that he intends to run again.

The AKP Party-led alliance won 51% of vote nationwide in March, but the secularist CHP claimed victory in the capital Ankara, Izmir, and Istanbul, where Erdogan had once been mayor.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
