Turkey's election heads for run-off

View descriptionShare

Turkey is heading  for a run-off vote after President Tayyip Erdogan led over his opposition rival Kemal Kilicdaroglu in Sunday's election but fell short of an outright majority to extend his 20-year rule of the NATO-member country.

Neither Erdogan nor Kilicdaroglu cleared the 50% threshold needed to avoid a second round, to be held on May 28, in an election seen as a verdict on Erdogan's increasingly authoritarian path.

KAN's Mark Weiss asked Dr Gabi Mitchell, a Policy Fellow at the Mitvim Institute, if Erdogan was the big winner from Sunday’s vote.
