Hah Hah Hah! Rerun the election a 3rd time? Erdy stunned by huge loss in Istanbul
Erdogan Dealt Stunning Blow as Istanbul Elects Rival Candidate
"We'll keep doing it til you rubes get it right!"
[Bloomberg] Turkish opposition candidate Ekrem Imamoglu won the redo of the Istanbul mayor's race by a landslide on Sunday, in a stinging indictment of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's economic policies and his refusal to accept an earlier defeat.
Imamoglu, backed by opposition parties including CHP, won 54% of the vote, and the ruling AK Party's candidate, former Prime Minister Binali Yildirim captured 45%, according to state media. The political upstart broadened his margin of victory to nearly 800,000 votes from 14,000 in the March 31 balloting,
in a clear sign voters are concerned about the crumbling of Turkey's democratic foundations and an economy reeling from a spike in consumer prices and unemployment.
