Felicity Party leader Temel Karamollaoğlu: "The [Malatya] incident was not a simple dispute, there was an attempt [by AKP members] to cast open votes at the ballot box and our election observers who objected to this were murdered." #TurkeyElections

The Communist Party of Turkey (TKP) is by all current numbers going to hold its first position as Mayor of a Province Capital with Fatih Mehmet Maçoğlu in the city Dêrsim/Tunceli.
Many maps and lists didn't even bother to include them in their legends. :-D
Happy victorious communists in Dêrsim/Tunceli.

0.06% votes difference now, with 98.8% counted.
With 98.8% of votes for Istanbul counted, AKP's candidate declared victory while CHP's candidate was then in the official lead,
at which point the State-owned ruling-party propaganda agency AA stopped delivering vote counts...
...and then the electoral commission's (YSK) website went offline.
Seems the dictatorship's party doesn't like the idea of losing.
@policeinchains It is however normal practice for their website to go down just as controversial counts are nearing finish...
...and for there to be power-outages, bags full of valid votes found in the trash and videos of vote "counters" sitting in secluded rooms stamping a whole bunch of ballots of their own, so this is maybe... better? :-D
@b9AcE No, that didn't happen as far as i can remember either. The spokesperson of election comitee said it as if he was witholding the official results which is a standart procedure. But unoficial results from them would usually be given to parties and to media through them. They stopped this time at 98.8 for Istanbul. Weird because there are places with higher percentages whose unoficial results has been given to public.

The Human Rights Association (İHD) published a preliminary report on #TurkeyElections day violations.
@bamfic Well, yes, it is at a different level.
Here's the town where the ruling AK Party made the most gains this time, from about 10% to now "winning",
after eradicating most of the town and replacing the population that was displaced with soldiers, voting there instead of where they should.
It can be good to compare with what's worse sometimes, to remind oneself of what to avoid...
