Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, followed by his wife Emine Erdoğan, is greeted at a polling station as he votes in the presidential and parliamentary elections, in Istanbul, Turkey, on May 14, 2023. The 69-year-old Turkish President, who runs for reelection, faces the toughest election challenge of his two-decade rule as he has been slowly losing support from key segments of the population that rallied around him during a more prosperous decade that followed his rise in 2003.

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan expressed hope after voting Sunday that the outcome of Turkey’s biggest election in generations would be “good for the future of the country,” but did not predict a win, Agence France-Presse reported.

“My hope to God is that after the counting concludes this evening, the outcome is good for the future of our country, for Turkish democracy,” he said.
