Eleições na Turquia: Erdogan consegue terceiro mandato
May 29, 2023 - O Presidente Recep Tayyip Erdoğan conseguiu um terceiro mandato de cinco anos numa histórica segunda volta, prolongando as duas décadas do seu governo transformador mas divisivo até 2028.
Early Monday morning, official results showed Erdoğan had received an absolute majority of 52.1% votes.
Rival Kemal Kiliçdaroğlu, who threatened to end Erdoğan’s 20-year political dominance, secured 47.9% of votes.
“The only winner today is Turkey, we should come together in unity and solidarity,” Erdogan told a chanting and flag-waving crowd. Erdoğan supporters chanted Allahu Akbar, or God is Great.
Erdoğan wrong-footed opponents who thought voters would punish him over the state’s slow response to devastating earthquakes in February, which killed more than 50,000 people.
