Türkiye presidential and parliamentary elections will be held on Sunday (14/5/2023).
On election day, the Turks will see if President Recep Tayyip Erdogan can stay in office for two decades.
Quoting CNN.com, analysts expect voter turnout to hit a record high this year, with the race close between Erdogan and main opposition candidate Kemal Kilicdaroglu, leader of the Republican People’s Party (CHP).
More than 1.8 million voters living abroad cast their votes on April 17, Turkish newspaper Daily Sabah reported on Wednesday, citing the country’s deputy foreign minister.
Türkiye’s demographics are also expected to determine the outcome of the election.
Most of the provinces affected by last February’s earthquake are strongholds of Erdogan and his AK party.
But Supreme Electoral Council (YSK) chairman Ahmet Yener said last month that at least 1 million voters in the earthquake-hit area, currently in the midst of displacement, should not have voted.
