About our 2023 Turkish General Elections news

Latest news on the Turkish general election, which were held on 14 May 2023 in Türkiye. Voters elected 600 members of the Grand National Assembly (TBMM) and the president. The incumbent president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, has announced his candidacy for re-election.

The main opposition party, the Republican People's Party (CHP), has nominated Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu as its presidential candidate.

The preliminary unofficial results show that neither Erdogan nor Kilicdaroglu cleared the threshold to win outright, with Erdogan's share of votes at just below 50 percent. This means that the Turkish presidential election is going for a run-off on 28 May between the two top contenders.
