İmamoğlu visits woman who was stabbed after declaring support for him

Must read

The Turkish opposition’s İstanbul mayoral candidate, Ekrem İmamoğlu, on Monday visited Göknur Damat, who was stabbed by a man after revealing that she had donated TL 20 ($3.40) to his election campaign in northwestern Tekirdağ province, the Diken news website reported.

Damat, who was a cancer patient and declared by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan to be a “stand-in daughter” following a meeting with him, drew harsh criticism from Erdoğan supporters after lending support to İmamoğlu.

On Friday she was stabbed in the calf by a man who sarcastically said, “Are you that courageous a woman?”

Turkey’s Supreme Election Board (YSK) canceled the İstanbul poll results last week and set a new election for June 23.

Following the YSK decision, İmamoğlu called on people to speak up against the ruling party’s pressure on the election board.
